    05:30 PM - 07:30 PMMenachem Begin Road 121, Tel Aviv-Yafo


    Part of being a leader means being willing to continuously grow and learn. Knowledge can come from many different sources: lecture videos, books, blog posts from all over the world and more. The most valuable source of information can be as simple as the occasional small talk at the conference where you meet a group of people who encountered the same challenges, during a meetup event, learning how to apply an architecture/tool/process in a much better way from a person who experimented with it from a completely different angle. Those talks happen spontaneously, but If you place great developers in the same location great discussions will just happen.

    If you are passionate about continuously improve your BI Development skills and knowledge, you are welcome to join the BI Development Leaders Forum kickoff. This forum is all about sharing our challenges and having a fruitful discussion. In order to do that, this forum will be limited to 20 people so we can sit in a roundtable and talk.

    • who is the BI Dev today (skills, background... )
    • Teams structure
    • Self-service Vs. product
