H2O is coming to YOU! In place of a single H2O World this year, H2O is on the go, taking our show on the road. The H2O Open Tour is bringing the community more opportunities to learn, connect and grow across the country.
Join us at H2O Open Tour NYC 2016 to:
The minds behind H2O will be on deck to answer your questions and take your feedback.
Schedule a 1:1 appointment with a product expert at our Hydration Station. Participate in hands-on training designed to help you dive deeper into H2O.
You’ll hear directly from people solving and predicting problems at their organizations with H2O. Discover what convinced them to #goH2O.
Come for the learning. Stay for the fun.
Save time and bring your laptop with the latest version of H2O loaded and ready to go! If this is the first time you are installing H2O you can find a handy tutorial with step by step instructions here.
We understand things change and fire drills come up. So if you have to transfer your ticket to a friend or colleague, we can do that for you. No change fee. No hassle. No sweat. Can't make NYC but would like us to transfer your registration to an upcoming H2O Open Tour event? We can do that, too. There will only be an increase in fee if you join us for the two-day program in San Francisco or New York. But hopefully this is neither here nor there -and we'll see you in NYC! You can contact us via the form at the bottom of this page or our Eventbrite registration page.
Designed for data scientists, data engineers and business analysts alike, the H2O Open Tour offers something for everyone in our community no matter your skillset.
The H2O Hydration Station is your chance to sign up for 1:1 consultation with a product expert. Signing up for an appointment is super easy! Appointments are scheduled on site at the Hydration Station on a first-come, first-served basis - so arrive early.
