We recently hosted Data @Scale, our invitation-only technical conference for engineers working on large-scale storage systems and analytics. For the second time, we hosted the event in Seattle, where the community of engineers working on high-scale systems is growing. We had a goal of bringing these vibrant engineers together to openly discuss challenges and collaborate on the development of new solutions when building services that serve millions — or even billions — of people. And we did just that by hearing a wide range of topics from speakers.
We had speakers from Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Qumulo, Tableau, Twitter, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. They spoke about visual data analysis, exabyte storage systems, batch and streaming data processing, and key-value stores. While the day touched on a variety of topics, one thing was the same: All the speakers were excited to share their insights on building and operating systems in practice.
We believe that any kind of harassment is unacceptable and so expect speakers and attendees to honour the Open Code of Conduct detailed here http://todogroup.org/opencodeofconduct/#@Scale.
If you experience or witness unacceptable behaviour – or have any other concerns – please report it by contacting us via email@example.com
