Learn amazing new data tech from technology creators, founders & tech execs CEO / CTO / CIO / VP.

All of our presentations are geared for a general-audience of people interested in database technologies; many events go into deep-tech but always include prerequisite knowledge so that all attendees (beginners to advanced) can expect to be able to grasp the concepts and leave much more knowledgeable.

- Creator of MySQL

About our SQL NYC community, written by Edward Oates:
(Ed Oates co-founded Oracle Corporation with Larry Ellison)

Data is at the center of our technological revolution: acquiring it, accessing it, searching it, analyzing it, and securing it. Nearly everything else we do is to provide a user friendly window for those activities.

Gathering to learn about data management and security is a vital activity to motivate the innovators who will sustain our technological progress and who will make the break through inventions that advance us by leaps rather than steps.
