dataMinds Connect is a 2 day in-person event in the wonderful city of Mechelen, Belgium. It's an IT related event with a specific focus on the Microsoft Data & AI Platform.
This is the new and improved version of the (former SQLUG.be) SQL Server Days. New and improved, keeping in mind the same core values. 2 days filled with learning, networking and a whole lot of laughs while doing so!
This year will be the 14th edition of the conference, and running for the fith time as dataMinds Connect. Aiming to bring together all people with a passion for the Microsoft Data & AI Platform, in all flavours possible, we're hoping to reunite with our many community members in person again, and share our common passion.
Go ahead and clearly mark Monday October 11th and Tuesday October 12th 2021 in your schedule, as these will be 2 days you don't want to miss!
TALK TO US:
When in doubt, reach out to the organising team for more information! We're all human beings here, so there's nothing we can't have a civil conversation about to figure things out.
Seriously, talk to us.
Open for all sessions related to the Microsoft Data & AI Platform, in all possible flavours. Going from your more traditional DBA and BI topics, to more advanced AI topics.
Non-tech sessions, contributing to a better and more diverse community, are welcomed with open arms. Think Mental Health for IT Pros, Imposter Syndrome, Amplifying Diversity & Inclusion, ..
All conference sessions will be 60 minutes, and allocated to a track by the organising team.
Proposals for precon sessions (full day workshops) are very welcomed, but bear in mind that we're also searching for these on our own. It may be possible that certain slots will be already booked.
We wholeheartedly encourage all new speakers to submit a proposal as a Newcomer. To be clear, new speakers are considered to be people who have not yet spoken at a (technical) conference. User Group sessions, webinars and client/team presentations are not taken into account.
Each new speaker will be paired up with a buddy/mentor, who will provide them with highly valuable tips & tricks. Even more so, we'll provide new speakers with all assistance they need and want whilst preparing for their debut.
EXPERT SESSIONS (400+, blow out some brains):
Following the positive reactions on our Experts Track, we're specifically looking for deep dive sessions on advanced, complex topics. When submitting a session like this, please make sure you clearly outline any prerequisites the attendees should have. We're aiming at enough level 400-500 (or higher) sessions, to offer a wide variety in sessions.
CODE OF CONDUCT:
All people involved in our event, are required to adhere to our Code of Conduct. There will be options to confide in different persons in case of reporting incidents and violations. Any person breaching the Code of Conduct, will potentially be removed from the event, regardless of their role of engagement.
Speakers will be asked to travel to Belgium for the event, and any exceptions should be discussed with the organising team.
We're moving forward with an in-person event, keeping a close eye on safety and health recommendations. If need be, we will be prepared to cancel at any given time to safeguard the well being of every person involved.
