Postponing Strata Data & AI San Jose

The best business decision is doing right by our community.

O'Reilly Strata Data and AI Conference

At O’Reilly, it’s in our DNA to always do the right thing for our customers, our team, and our partners. Which is why, given the news about the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we’ve decided not to move forward with Strata Data & AI in San Jose on March 15th. Instead, we’re merging it with our larger Strata Data & AI New York event taking place September 14–17, 2020, and transferring San Jose attendee registrations and sponsorships to join us at no additional cost.

We’ve been working to keep the San Jose event moving forward over the course of the last few weeks because we’re excited about convening the data science and AI communities in such a unique new way. But an abundance of caution and our belief in putting people first has shifted our resolve. Our primary concern is with our speakers, sponsors, employees, and attendees traveling during this uncertain time. O’Reilly has always believed that the success of our events stems from the entire ecosystem coming together, and we want to hold the conference at a time and place where it can be a successful experience for the whole community.

We’re very excited about the possibilities of an even grander Strata and AI event in New York. Strata Data & AI New York is our most exciting event of the year and has the largest turn out of any O’Reilly event.

To keep your palate sharp until then, we’ll be doing a virtual livestream of some of our top sessions and interactive training courses through O’Reilly online learning—and our conference registrants get 90 days of unlimited access for free. We’ll post the program here when it’s ready.

Thanks for your understanding as we all wrestle with this global health issue.
