This event will be IN PERSON only.
Big Mountain Data and Dev Conference is the premier technical agnostic conference in the state. All sessions will be held in person at the SLCC Miller Campus. This will be a 1 day event and have sessions through the whole day. The event is free and open to all.
This event is designed to be a combination of Big Data and Utah Code Camp. We are looking for diversity in our topics, they can be coding, soft skills, big data, databases, systems or architecture. We are open to sessions of all kind.
Now is your chance to present and help build and maintain this amazing technical community we have. It's been too long since we have been able to present in person and we are planning to put this event on fully in person. We will abide by any restrictions or rules in place during the event.
If you need assistance getting a session ready or if you would like to review the presentation with someone please let us know and we will happily jump on a zoom meeting and provide tips and tricks.
All sessions right now will be 60 minutes in length. We will be looking for volunteers to help facilitate conversation on various topics.
How we approach speaker selection. The schedule right now has room for about 30+ sessions. This is a much smaller schedule than we have had in the past so we will be limited in what sessions we can accept this year. Sessions will be 60 minutes in length we suggest 45 minutes for presentations and 15 minutes for Q&A. All presenters will only have 1 speaking slot until all presenters have a slot. Once the schedule has been filled we will then go back to the sessions and take second sessions from presenters based ranking of the abstract/presentation. We are planning on having community voting on for the sessions for this event as well. Stay tuned for how that exactly will work.
I have included an example below to make this clear.
Pat Submitted 3 sessions to speak and the vote breakdown was like this. session1 = 2nd rank, session2 = 3rd rank, session3 =1st rank.
Nick Submitted 2 sessions to speak and the vote breakdown was like this. session1 = 2nd rank, session2 = 1st rank.
Pat would get Session3 placed on the schedule. Nick would then get his session2 placed on the schedule. This would continue through all speakers, after the last speaker had a slot chosen then we would go back and pat would also get session1 for 2nd rank(depending on other speakers and other ranks as well).
One of the primary goals of the event is to grow the speaker community. We encourage you submit to speak. If you are a new speaker and would like a review of your presentation or help with practicing please contact us below. We are happy to help you out.
