BURLINGAME, Calif., May 18, 2022 — Imply, founded by the creators of Apache Druid, today announced that Druid Summit will be hitting the road starting in May, bringing the live event to cities in the U.S., EMEA and APAC. Druid Summit is the annual event for developers, architects and other data professionals who are building analytics applications and are interested in learning or expanding their knowledge of Apache Druid.

Druid Summit On The Road in Austin will feature a presentation from Kevin Peng, chief engineer at Audigent, which will look at how Apache Druid can be used to retrieve data for reporting quickly and efficiently and discuss why users should consider moving away from multi-level aggregates.

There’s also no better way to learn than with hands-on, face-to-face interactions.”

Druid Summit On The Road is also currently accepting speaking proposals for the upcoming events. Talks can cover topics ranging from ​​development methods, architectural patterns, operational best practices to real-world case studies of Druid in production.
