The DSrupted 2015 website is now live, the agenda is out and ticketing is live for the event, Sept. 16th in Toronto.
We’re pulling together our speakers and already have commitments from a couple of really, really good ones.
Microsoft’s Mike Pell will talk about data visualization. He’s a Senior Designer in the Cloud + Enterprise division of Microsoft, focused on bringing clarity to the extreme scale and complexity of modern datacenter management. You can get a sense of his style and what he’ll have to say from this speech at a visualization conference last year.
Thrilled to have him.
Brad Parler will relate how he re-imagined corporate communications content at Blinds.com, and how what he learned applies to any digital sign network.

We’re also firming up our three other feature speakers, and looking at topics like analytics, IoT, emerging display technologies and Google Chrome.
