What people are saying

“The Data Science Salon series is the most important new conversation happening in the industry right now.” Eduardo Arino de la Rubia

Domino Data Lab

“Their conferences are smaller, more intimate, with lots of opportunities for workshops and networking, which helps fill that need in the data science community to get together from time to time.” Roger Magoulas

O’Reilly Media

“I think it’s easy to get preoccupied with the project of the day. What I appreciate about the Data Science Salon is that it’s a conference I actually want to go to – it’s fun, you learn some great things, you meet some great people, and at the end of the day you feel energized rather than drained. It’s taken me out of my silo and put me in the community. I think it’s great.” Jack Parmer
