Datanova 2023: an introduction to data contracts

Last Updated: April 6, 2023

As a Chad Sanderson follower, I’ve had the pleasure of laughing at (and commiserating with) his amazing data memes that hit just a little too close to home, such as this one: 

Chad’s data evangelism on data contracts and other data topics near and dear to our hearts, even got him featured in The Top Data Strategy Influencers And Content Creators On LinkedIn. In other words, he’s a big deal.

Learn from Chad Sanderson, Chief Operator of Data Quality Camp at Datanova and how data contracts can drive a cultural change toward data-centric collaboration resulting in well-modeled, high-quality, and trusted data.

In the meantime, join his awesome slack community, Data Quality Camp, which strives to provide a space to host and preserve conversations around the present, past, and future of data quality, data modeling, data contracts, and data governance.
