On behalf of the entire Big Data Beard team, I am really excited to announce that we are now an official community partner and sponsor for ALL of the Strata Data and Artificial Intelligence global conferences! The O’Reilly community has a bunch of smart, talented people and we are thrilled to collect some crumbs of knowledge from them while providing a platform for our listeners to learn all the cool and innovate things going on in Big Data and AI.

The team will be at all of the Strata Data and Artificial Intelligence global conferences in 2018 with our beards trimmed, waxed and styled ready to talk with the interesting folks that are making big data a big deal. We will be recording interviews at each show as well for our weekly podcast.  If you have a story or are doing some interesting and are attending one of the events, reach out to us.
