The launchpad for new speakers in the Microsoft Data Platform space
New Stars of Data is an event to help find and promote new speakers in the Microsoft Data Platform arena. It is run by Ben Weissman and William Durkin. Speakers submit their presentation ideas and are assigned to a seasoned speaker, who will mentor the newcomer in all aspects around delivering a presentation.
The event is the natural extension of the “Newcomer Track” from DataGrillen where a single track was dedicated to nurturing new speaker talent. New Stars of Data is an entire event focused only on newcomer speakers.
The criteria to be considered to speak at New Stars of Data are easy:
- You have never spoken at a large, public event before. (User Groups/Meetups do not rule you out!)
- Your presentation is on a topic in the Microsoft Data Platform world
- Your presentation is in English
- Your presentation will fill the allotted time (60 minutes)
