DSS Asia 2022: Event Highlights and Key Takeaways
We held our second annual Distributed SQL Summit (DSS) Asia annual conference on the 30th and 31st of March 2022, following great feedback from our initial event and user demand.
This two-day online conference was packed with fascinating presentations, discussions, and demos from customers, partners, and our own experts.
With 35 engaging sessions to choose from, and more than 40 speakers, the conference served as a hub for advocates, partners, customers, users, and industry experts to meet up and learn the benefits and advantages of distributed SQL and the adoption of cloud-native architecture.
This blog post looks at some of the event highlights and key takeaways.
A big thank you to our DSS Asia 2022 presenters
We were fortunate to have been joined by some amazing speakers. Each brought a unique perspective and shared their journeys with the online audience. They also revealed how they worked alongside Yugabyte to power 100% open-source solutions and capitalize on the ability to run on any infrastructure.
We are grateful thought leaders and customers joined us and added their thought-provoking discussions. It was incredible for them to share insights into their growth journeys with Yugabyte.
We responded to customer requests from last year, adding a dedicated Japanese Track to DSS Asia 2022. A variety of Japanese experts talked about distributed SQL database momentum, use cases, migration, and developer productivity.
We also want to highlight the valued input of our partners, who have worked closely with us through the years as we expand our geo-distributed family.
Finally, Yugabyte is only as strong as our amazing globally-distributed team. We want to thank them for the unique and practical perspective they brought to the event.
