Meet your selected Speakers! GroupBy Tracks announced, registration open.

Not everyone can travel to user group meetings and SQL Saturday events (well, no one can right now, but that’s beside the point). New speakers need their community to make space for them to try things out, make mistakes, and receive constructive feedback.

We realized this year that our two guiding principles may conflict with each other if the rockstars of our community all submit sessions, how can we develop new speakers?

Thanks to our Junior Speaker program, and that indeed did happen.

There will be two concurrent tracks for both GroupBy Americas and GroupBy Europe as we had done in our last event. They are as follows:

We are undoubtedly thrilled to see so much good content. We’ll be using zoom webinars again and trying out some of the great features to get people engaged. I’ll post more information on that as it takes shape. We’ve also given speakers 90 minutes to get really deep into their content. That was a direct request from most of the European speakers out of last October’s event. We’re testing that out, and we’re curious what you think.

Like always, this content will be edited and posted for free on the GroupBy’s Youtube channel.

Thank you to everyone who submitted this year. We can’t thank you enough for making GroupBy what it is.
