csv,conf,v3 is happening! This time the community-run conference will be in Portland, Oregon, USA on 2nd and 3rd of May 2017. https://csvconf.com
It will feature stories about data sharing and data analysis from science, journalism, government, and open source. We want to bring together data makers/doers/hackers from backgrounds like science, journalism, open government and the wider software industry to share knowledge and stories.
csv,conf is a non-profit community conference run by people who love data and sharing knowledge. This isn’t just a conference about spreadsheets. CSV Conference is a conference about data sharing and data tools. We are curating content about advancing the art of data collaboration, from putting your data on GitHub to producing meaningful insight by running large scale distributed processing on a cluster.
Submit a Talk! Talk proposals for csv,conf close Feb 15, so don’t delay, submit today! https://csvconf.com
The deadline is fast approaching and we want to hear from a diverse range of voices from the data community. Talks are 20 minutes long and can be about any data-related concept that you think is interesting. There are no rules for our talks, we just want you to propose a topic you are passionate about and think a room full of data nerds will also find interesting. You can check out some of the past talks from csv,conf,v1 (http://csvconf.com/2014) and csv,conf,v2 (https://csvconf.com/2016/) to get an idea of what has been pitched before.
