After months of planning, it's finally here: DataLayer Conference. On Wednesday, we're hosting our second annual conference focused on the space where apps meet data, shining a light on how developers and companies build out their data layer to make the best use of their data to keep their apps working flawlessly.
A few weeks ago you may have read the article on how we a blind review process to select speakers. We used that to get eleven of our thirteen speakers, excluding our two keynotes, Charity Majors from Honeycomb and Amy Unruh from Google. This means that we've drawn our speakers from the talented people in several different industries and from companies ranging in size from consultancies to global enterprises.
