Snowplow Data Leaders’ Dinners are a series of global events that provide industry professionals with the perfect forum to share ideas, challenges, and best practices with peers over an exquisite meal and a fine glass of wine.
The data landscape is complex and constantly evolving. As a result, it can be difficult to keep up with industry developments and understand what’s best for your business.
That’s why we launched the Snowplow Data Leaders’ Dinners, specifically designed to provide professionals with an interest in data with a relaxed and friendly environment to discuss challenges and gain valuable insights from industry peers and Snowplow experts.
Auto Trader loves open source technologies. Snowplow is an open source technology—we didn’t see the value of managing it ourselves, but we like the fact that we can contribute code.HEAD OF ENGINEERING (DATA AND PLATFORM) AT AUTO TRADER
What are Snowplow Data Leaders’ Dinners?
Since the first Data Leaders’ Dinner in 2022, these exclusive, invitation-only events have proven very popular. They bring together like-minded professionals to share knowledge, insights and best practices for using data in business. At each dinner, guests share valuable advice and learn what has worked for others (and what often has not), while learning about the latest approaches to data and analytics that are proven to deliver business value.
Previous discussion points have included:
- Balancing increasing demands for customer-centricity with mounting compliance and privacy commitments;
- Mitigating risk relating to trends in privacy regulations for marketing analytics and user tracking;
- Maximizing the opportunity from data warehouses and data lakes in the context of AI/ML;
- Factors behind successfully adopting Data Product Management principles.
At the dinners, you’ll also learn more about Snowplow and how the company is supporting over 1.9 million websites around the world including Strava, Gousto, and Auto Trader.
With Snowplow, we do a lot of custom stuff, so we wanted to use the evening as a chance to see if other companies were doing something similar, and if we could learn anything from them.”BETH GARFIN | SOFTWARE ENGINEER AT AUTO TRADER
