Calling all Data Punks!

Do your knees go weak when you hear the phrase “big data”? Does the thought of having your own personal data dashboard make you want to give high-fives to random strangers? We know how you feel!
Whether you’re the type of person who spends hours in front of a spreadsheet forming an analysis that’ll predict the future; or you’re the renegade entrepreneur using datasets to further your plan of conquering the world; we get you.
You, my friend, are not a geek to us. You’re an analytic alchemist. A lean, mean, data analysing machine. We are proud to count you among the ranks of those titans of data we call Data Punks. And that, my fellow data punk, is why we’re hosting the Data Summit!

What is the Data Summit?

To help fill your craving for new and useful applications of data, we’re proud to announce the Data Summit...a one day special event with 400 of the biggest and baddest minds in the dataverse.
Mix one part growth hacking, two parts data analysis, toss in dash of mad scientist and that is what the Data Summit is all about.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn

Finding thousands of new sales leads, gaining a 360 view of customer, crafting the next big data-driven product – the Data Summit will give you step-by-step and actionable tactics on using data that you can immediately implement at your own company.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll learn:
• Ian Webster of Google is going to explain how he used data to become a rocket scientist while creating Asterank, a database of over 600,000 asteroids (acquired by Planetary Resources).
• Alex Gimson of will lead workshops that’ll have you extracting data like a pro.
• Brett and Graham Hunter of Tradecraft will give you the step-by-step playbook on how to build a lead generating machine that’ll crush the competition.
• Steven Sinofsky from Andreessen Horowitz and Owen Thomas from Read Write Web will sit down for a fireside chat to tell you how to use data to build the next billion dollar company.

And that, my good friend, is just a portion of the day’s schedule. Simply scroll down to view this year’s speakers:
