About the Conference / What You Need To Know

Data Con LA 2018 Highlight Video

Data Con LA is the largest, of its kind, data conference in Southern California. Spearheaded by Subash D’Souza and organized and supported by a community of volunteers, sponsors and speakers, Data Con LA features the most vibrant gathering of data and technology enthusiasts in Los Angeles.

Data Con LA began as Big Data Day LA in 2013, with just over 250 attendees. We have since grown to over 550 attendees in 2014, 950+ attendees in 2015, 1200+ attendees in 2016, and 1550+ attendees in 2017. In 2018, we re-branded ourselves from Big Data Day LA to Data Con LA. We also had over 1800+ attendees attend. This year we expect that tally to be over 2000.

Our 2019 session tracks will include:

  • Data
  • AI/ ML/ Data Science
  • Emerging Tech
  • Visualizations/ UI/ Use Cases
  • Infrastructure & Security
