DataEngBytes! is a community conference centred on real world data engineering problems and solutions.

We will have two days of in-person conferences in Sydney (on the 5th) and Melbourne (on the 6th) of October with both days broadcast online on our YouTube channel (


Our talks are designed to be bite-sized and suitable for in-person and online formats:

- 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 four 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 artefacts, feature stores etc

Data you trust - data discovery & provenance, data testing and confidence scoring, ethical consideration and data security plus compliance obligations

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.

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, Australia is a non-profit community event.
