You read that correctly. Data moshpit.
This September the greatest thing in the history of great things happening will happen. On Saturday September 16, in a metal club in Berlin, data platform MVPs Ben Kettner and Frank Geisler are JOINing the two best things in the world: data and heavy metal.
Data Moshpit is a one-day community event with a heavy metal theme. The sessions will be metal. The speakers will be metal. The atmosphere will be metal. There will be beer and food and if my experience at metal shows in Germany have taught me anything, lots of brothers of metal and sisters of steal wearing leather and denim and the coolest jean jacket vests with giant Manowar back patches.
The Data Moshpit call for speakers is open now, and closes on July 7th. You can submit metal-themed sessions of your own, or just check out the exciting sessions already submitted.
If you’ve got a heart of steel and data for blood, this is the one event of 2023 that you cannot afford to miss. And if you’re not into metal, you should come anyway. It will be a great opportunity to connect with the community and learn something new. I hope to see you there!
 Yes, I made this joke. Don’t be CROSS.
 You can still be my friend, don’t worry.
