Join us for the inaugural Prefect Summit on June 25th—a virtual half-day exploration of data's future. We're thrilled to welcome Prefect customers like Cash App's Wendy Tang and Cox Automotive's John Kang, industry visionaries such as Chris Riccomini, and our own Prefectionist team.

Is there anyone who doesn’t love a good listicle? Here’s five great reasons why you should attend Prefect Summit 2024.

Reason 1: Write resilient code with Prefect 3.0 open source

Prefect Summit 2024 is your chance to be among the first to dive deeply into the 3.0 release of the Prefect open-source project. I’ve gotten a chance to work closely with both Jeremiah and Chris on their keynotes and I’m genuinely excited for the world to see these great talks. Jeremiah will share his real-world perspective on where we’ve been and where we’re headed in the data space, and how trustworthy data is the key to unlocking the next generation of data opportunities. Chris dives deep into our 3.0 open source additions, including our event-based workflow and automations engine. He’ll also unveil a groundbreaking approach to supporting “idempotent” pipelines, a unique solution for ensuring data consistency.

For our Prefect Cloud users, please be assured that our 3.0 open source release does not introduce any breaking changes or updates that require a new configuration. Learn more about what 3.0 means in the FAQs of our event page.

Reason 2: Learn from industry practitioners

Gain invaluable insights from data experts who have been in the trenches and are eager to share their hard-earned lessons in building robust data workflows. Discover how John Kang, Director of Planning Analytics at Cox Automotive, enabled analytics without infrastructure worries.  Learn from Wendy Tang, Machine Learning Engineer at Cash App, on her experience in empowering hundreds of data practitioners at Cash App and Block.

Reason 3: Increase trust in AI applications

We know, we know - at this point you're probably tired of hearing about AI. It seems like every product, platform, and event is making bold claims about artificial intelligence these days. But at Prefect Summit 2024, we're taking a different approach. We don't want to dazzle you with AI hype and buzzwords. Instead, we want to have an honest discussion about one of the biggest challenges facing AI adoption: trust.

Because in an AI powered world, businesses don’t just run on data workflows, they run on data workflows that they can trust. At the summit, you'll explore tangible ways to gain visibility into every step of the AI generation process. You'll be equipped to identify and address issues such as LLM hallucinations that can quickly undermine trust and reliability in your AI applications.

Reason 4: Gain Industry Insights from Chris Riccomini

Prepare to be inspired by Chris Riccomini, the author and engineer behind Apache Samza, as he shares his visionary outlook on the future of data infrastructure. From the potential of object storage for primary persistence and decomposable databases, to the greenfield opportunities still available for durable execution, Chris's keynote promises to be a highlight of the summit.

Reason 5: Happy hours in NYC, Chicago and London
