We’re back in Vegas! After a year off, AWS re:Invent 2021 is happening, starting on November 29 and running through December 2. Around 20,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event, and Matillion will be there with them. We’re excited to get out from behind our Zoom screens and meet our customer, partners, and other re:Invent attendees face to face. Are you going? If so, definitely stop by Booth #530 in the Venetian/Sands Expo to say hello, get a demo of Matillion ETL or Matillion Data Loader, get some free stuff, and “sync” a putt or three for a chance to drive some really fast cars. We’d love to see you there.
What else are we up to in Vegas next week? Here are five things you definitely don’t want to miss:
1. Data from Anywhere to Everywhere: Get the Lowdown on Universal Connectivity
What’s better than pre-built connectors OR custom connnectors? Both, made possible by Universal Connectivity. On Monday, November 29, join our breakout session, Bringing Universal Connectivity to Cloud Data Platforms, where Paul Lacey and Mark Balkenende, Senior Directors of Product Marketing at Matillion will be joined by Paul Johnson, Director of Product Management. They’ll talk about how Universal Connectivity helps you quickly connect to any data source to get your data into your cloud data platform and gives you extensibility beyond pre-built connectors or open source alone. It promises to be a great session with a panel of experts rarely gathered together in one place.
