Announcing additional ACCELERATE speakers from Twitch, Google, and Nordstrom!
Today we are excited to announce some additional speakers at our 2019 ACCELERATE conference in Los Gatos, California on January 24th and 25th. In addition to Ben Gaines from Adobe and Krista Seiden from Google, we are delighted to be joined by June Dershewitz from Twitch, Lizzie Allen Klein from Google, and David White from Nordstrom.
June is a long-time friend of the firm and will be sharing her insights into the emerging relationships between Data Analysts, Data Scientists, and Data Engineers, Lizzie is an analytics rock-star at Google and will be talking about how any data worker can elevate their own skills in an effort to get the most from their career, and David will be talking about how Nordstrom is essentially “rolling their own” digital analytics and building data collection and distribution based on open source, cloud-based technology.
