Datagrillen: Data, Bratwurst und Beer

Data, Bratwurst and Beer

An event that started 5 years ago as a small event, that has grown into an event with 200 participants, 50+ sessions, 5 tracks, 2 days and a BBQ in a small place in Germany, called Lingen. William Durkin and Ben Weissman are the main organizers, but are supported by a bunch of volunteers and supported by a great group of sponsors.

Speaker/Volunteer diner

Wednesday the event started for me with a drink in Hotel Lobby and with a great dinner in the Alte Posthalterei. We had a great evening, met some old friends and made some new friends.

Sessions

DataGrillen Keynote

The first day started early, we helped preparing the badges and did the check in. Around 9:00 am almost every attendee was in and ready for the Keynote. During the keynote there was a special welcome to all the newcomer Speakers and their mentors. This newcomer track is designed to accommodate people new to presenting. In my opinion this newcomer tracks should be introduced to all events.

During these 2 days there were 5 sessions divided over 5 tracks on both days. I have attended many nice sessions, but I have certainly gained a lot of new inspiration out of these sessions.

Day 1 ended with the traditional bbq. Personally, I love bbq a lot and know that it is hard work to get a bbq for 200 people, but the catering did very well. Compliments to the catering.

During the days I have spoken to many people, both well-known and also many new ones. From Axians we joined this event with 3 people.

We are 1 large #sqlfamily.

 

 

Rafle time
