Join us for DataLayer


Compose is hosting an all new conference to have a conversation about data and how managing it has become the fabric of application development.

At one time, a monolithic database probably made sense for most developers, but those days are long gone. Today teams can be found using a JSON document store for scale, a graph database to create connections, a message queue to handle messaging, a caching system to accelerate responses, a time-series database for streaming data, a relational database for metrics and more. It can be hard to stay on top of all of your options or to visualize how this can all work together.

Enter DataLayer, a one-day, single-track event to help start the conversation about optimizing the data layer to scale modern web and mobile apps. On September 28th, Compose is bringing speakers to Seattle's EMP Museum. Speakers will talk about how they're managing their data, using data stores and how their data architecture is benefiting their apps. Think of it as a conference at the intersection of data and app development.

Right now, we're building a great lineup and want to give you a chance to participate. If you've got an idea for a talk, let us know by submitting a proposal in our call for speakers and we'll send you a spiffy shirt. If you're selected, we'll get you out to Seattle to present at DataLayer. Pretty rad, right?
