ScyllaDB Summit 2021 Speakers Announced

Summit Speaker Announcement blog post

ScyllaDB Summit is the annual opportunity for our community, our partners, our engineers and staff to all meet, mingle and learn from each other. Of course, this year ScyllaDB Summit will be a virtual event, January 12-14 2021. That means no time lost for travel, no need to choose from multiple tracks, and no cost for the event — not even for our Training Day.

  1. Learn the latest innovations to take back to your team
  2. Network with the best brains in the industry
  3. Get trained at our online Training Day (no charge for training this year!)

  5. Hear use cases, tips and tricks, optimizations and best practices from your colleagues
