Speakers must currently reside in Belgium. We're making this a locally focused event for speakers, but free to attend for anyone.
dataMinds Saturday will be an in-person event, hosted on April 27th 2024.
Most important of all, is that it will be free to attend for anyone.
In the past years we’ve noticed an upward trend in the number of data-related User Groups and conferences sprouting up in Europe and all over the world. The data community is a great community and there are a lot of talented international speakers ready to share their knowledge.
Recognition is key and there are not many opportunities for local talent to grow their acknowledgement as a lot of international speakers fill in speaker slots quickly. This doesn’t leave much room for the rising stars. With dataMinds Saturday 2024 we want to shift the focus and pass the mic along to local talent, granting them their place in the spotlight and offering them the opportunity to add more speaking experience to their portfolio.
dataMinds is therefore organising another edition of dataMinds Saturday on April 27th 2024 with a focus on Microsoft Data & AI Platform enthusiasts residing in Belgium ready to deliver great content.
Throughout the year, and with our other events we welcome any speaker with open arms, but making sure our local talent can grow, is still one of our primary goals as a local user group in Belgium.
To conclude, a reminder that should be obvious to anyone. We believe that anyone should be able to attend our event, regardless of their characteristics.
We require everyone to adhere to our Code of Conduct, and will remove anyone that doesn't do so.
The session length for all sessions is 60 minutes, in which 5 minutes are blocked for Q&A. Speakers are advised to not run over the allotted time, to allow the next speaker to prepare, and the attendees to take a small break.
The sessions will be held in 3 rooms throughout the day. Please submit your session to which of these tracks you think it's linked the most. If need be, the organisation can swap sessions to different tracks, if we deem it necessary.
Sessions can only be submitted in English.
When in doubt, don't hesitate to contact us!
