Pete Soderling — thanks for the incredible effort in ensuring a diverse set of speakers and attendees at DataEngConf. It was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended, not just because of the quality of the talks, but because of the environment at the conference — a safe, inclusive place to discuss data science/engineering ideas with attendees.

Also, a huge shout out to the folks in charge of food at the conference. There was a concerted effort to minimize sugary snacks, which I really appreciated. Another diversity/inclusion measure that is completely overlooked sometimes.

Can’t wait for the next iteration of DataEngConf.
