Thank you for attending GroupBy 2022

We believe you shouldn't have to pay a fortune just to feel like you're not falling behind.

Just because conferences and training events are cancelled this year doesn’t mean technology in the data platform will stand still. Connect with your peers and keep the #SQLFamily strong with a free two-day virtual conference, plus access to all previous sessions.

GroupBy is a great opportunity for new presenters to hone their presentation skills, and we welcome pros to share their expertise as well!



Voting opens

It’s important for you to vote for the sessions you really want to see, because only a limited number of sessions will be selected for each day of the conference.

Sessions are split to align with Americas time zones and sessions for Europe time zones; all are welcome at both and all recordings are available post-event!
