Due to global pandemic, we have decided to transition the 2020 conference to a virtual format.  The event will still be filled with informative and interactive sessions from thought leaders across the world.  

Thank you so much for your patience and support!  We look forward to meeting you virtually soon.

conference schedule

Please continue visiting the schedule for the latest updates.  

The conference will be made up of single track over 3 days with 20+ sessions:

  • Full sessions will be 45 minutes (30 minute presentation, 15 minute live Q&A + additional Q&A in Slack)

  • Lightning talks will be 5-10 minute presentations (Q&A facilitated only in Slack)

We plan to record all of the sessions so that registered attendees can view and access the content for 2 weeks after the event concludes.  We will send an email with instructions to access the recordings on Friday afternoon.
