🍍 Welcome to DareTable 2023!
This is my third year hosting DareTable since it was founded at the start of the pandemic in 2020.
Our first event was virtual, and I was surprised that we had over 1000 people sign up to attend within a week.
After nearly two years of doing videos with Ben Green at OptimizeIS and helping to grow our Facebook Airtable support community to nearly 7000 people, I asked Ben to join me for our first in-person event in Austin, Texas in 2022.
It was no small feat finding a space, and building an Airtable to manage speakers, sponsors, attendees, and more, but we did it!
For 2023, I knew we had to do something special! So I set to work to taking our event to San Francisco and Airtable Headquarters.
It also was no small feat!
Thank you to Airtable for your support of our community and for hosting us in your space!
For 2023, we were joined by two amazing GOLD sponsors who stepped up to the plate to support us! Make and Stacker!
Additionally, we have a lot of sponsor partners that made the event extra special.
But why DareTable?
While most of the world who Google’s “Most Connected” knows me for my decade-long journey of using technology to make my life better, it’s always been my desire to help others use tools to make the world better.
From 1995-2015 I was a part of many software communities and watched an explosion of growth in how communities and events grew and shaped each other.
This meant when it came time to be a part of another; it was critical to lay the foundation for how I would want to encourage people to interact, create and support each other.
DareTable is my wish for a world that is more connected, intimate, and compassionate via data and tools.
Thank you for coming,
