HYTRADBOI: The Jam!
Sep 26 to Oct 2
Have you tried rubbing a database on it?
HYTRADBOI was a day of lightning talks about turning a data-centric lens onto familiar problems to yield strange new solutions (and maybe exciting new problems). Talks ranged from wild ideas and unlikely experiments to cutting-edge research and production war stories.

Why no sponsors? Most industry conferences are dominated by adverts from vendors. We wanted to do something a little different. But it's hard to say no to people who already gave you money.
What about accessibility? All the talks are captioned. The event will be based around a text chat, with optional video breakout rooms.
Will recordings be available afterwards? All the talks will be prerecorded and will be published here afterwards. The discussion and chat rooms will not be recorded.
Can we behave like idiots? We expect everyone to conduct themselves like the professionals you are. Also: be curious and constructive rather than cynical and dismissive, stay on topic and avoid digressions that are likely to start fights.
Who is running this thing? HYTRADBOI is organized by Jamie Brandon.
