PDC is done for another year. We had a great time presenting and chatting everyone. Thanks for all your thoughtful feedback! If you didn't make it to all the data services PDC sessions....
First: Shame on you.
Second: Here is a summary (with links to recordings) of the data services focused sessions at PDC:
