A Record-Breaking CFP Response

Response to the 2019 CFP was a record-breaking one, and we couldn’t be happier or more thankful. We’ve said it many times before, but the success of any event depends on content featured, and speakers deliver content.

The wide variety of talks from a very diverse range of speakers ensures the schedule at this year’s conference will be among the best ever. And most importantly, will deliver tremendous value to attendees.

Just shy of 1,000 talks were submitted across 25 track topic areas! The group was a nice mix of introductory, intermediate, and advanced level offerings.

We feel the number of talks submitted to each track topic also tells an interesting story and makes for some really interesting data.
