What is DataWeek?

DataWeek 2013 Conference + Festival is the second-annual 6-day data-centric event in downtown San Francisco. Our team’s goal is to organize the largest data-centric event in the nation, with over 3,000 attendees already registered!

Each day of DataWeek has a different business and technology focus ranging from the Saturday / Sunday hackathon activities, the Monday / Tuesday technical workshops, and the Wednesday / Thursday conference & expo. One pass gets you into all official events of the DataWeek Conference + Festival!

DataWeek is an industry event with the goal of placing the most innovative data technologies in front of Bay-area and nation-wide technology executives, nation-wide developers and data scientists, as well as potential customers for those technologies. We aim to routinely maintain our forward-thinking edge on conference topics such as the API economy, the Hadoop ecosystem, data science and machine learning tools, and data hacker tools.

Our Philosophy

In an information economy, data is the new capital.

Data 2.0 believes the data revolution is when business and society realize that data is not just how you analyze your business: data is your business. The opportunity to succeed in business, technology, and society happens when we join a new ecosystem of data feeds, data infrastructure, data technologies, and data markets. Corporations today are unlocking the value in their terabytes of data, city governments are opening up their city data for public use, and thousands of “data startups” are building on top of emerging social data feeds.

Data 2.0 is at the epicenter of this paradigm shift and through its premiere conferences and events, brings together data industry thought leaders, innovators and evangelists to address the new data economy and its impact on business, technology, and society.

The transition from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 was a transition from static hyperlinked webpages to the “social web” of user-generated content, cross-site integration, website-as-platform, and social participation. Similarly, the transition from Data 1.0 to Data 2.0 is marked by greater accessibility, interoperability, and 3rd party leverage of online data. With Data 2.0, access to data is relevant to you.

As the industry’s second annual week-long conference and festival showcasing innovations behind the Data Revolution, DataWeek is organized by Geoff Domoracki and Jonathan Pasky, co-founders and the founders of Techweek in Chicago and the Data 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.  Dataweek 2012 will feature over 200 speakers from Google, Twitter, IBM, Cloudera, CitrusLeaf, Dun & Bradstreet, and hundreds of other data-centric companies for a 4-day conference inside a weeklong series of data events, workshops, hackathons, and hiring mixers, and meetups.
