DataEngBytes! is a not-for-profit virtual event centred on real world data engineering problems and solutions. It is a taster of what is to come for our in-person event which will be held in 2021.


Our talks are designed to be bite-sized and virtual: 

- 10 minute lightning talk for up and coming speakers

- 25 minutes (including Q&A)

We are looking for:

We are looking for talks aligned to our three themes: 

Data at rest - scaling, data warehouses, data lakes, data storage

Data in motion - event driven architecture, data pipelines, IoT, batch, streaming

Data for machine learning - getting models into production, data pipeline for machine learning, managing data artifacts, feature stores etc 

We are looking for a range of stories and real-world experiences from working on your side projects through to enterprise level applications. Share your learnings, experiences and best practices with us. 

As this is a virtual conference all selected talks will be provided with guidelines on how to record your talk prior to the conference.

Mentoring, Review and Coaching

Have you never submitted a response to a conference CFP before? We have mentors who are happy to review your submissions and give you advice! Nervous about speaking and want someone to coach you? We have experienced speakers who are happy to assist you. Email to tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll introduce you to one of our great mentors.

CFP Process

Inclusivity is very important to us and the CFP process is anonymized to minimize selection bias. Please be aware of this when submitting your response to not add your company name or identifying information in your talk description or subject. Otherwise, a poor sod will have to remove it before it goes to the CFP committee.

DataEngConfAU, Sydney is a non-profit community event.
