Ignite Strata San Jose 2018

Call closed 11:59pm 02/09/2018 PST.


Ignite San Jose is open to all Strata Data Conference attendees and will be held Tuesday evening, March 6th, following the day’s tutorials. Come join us for an evening of Ignite talks, networking, beverages, and appetizers.

We’re interested in any topic as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to philosophy, particularly presentations that touch on the wonder and mysteries of big data and pervasive computing. The night includes time to network and chat, so be sure to bring business cards! We’re always looking for new speakers, but are not interested in product demos. Instead, present a how-to, a travelogue, something inspirational, lessons learned, or a forecast. Speakers are limited to 20 slides, which automatically advance after 15 seconds – that’s the fun of Ignite!

Ignite speakers receive a Bronze pass to Strata San Jose, which includes access to conference keynotes, sessions, and events on Wednesday, March 7th, and Thursday, March 8th.
