Estes Park Group

First Thursday of each Month | Virtual

The Estes Park Group is a monthly online presentation and discussion forum on knowledge graph and data-centric architecture (DCA) trends. SA President Dave McComb first brought the Group together in person in 2017 for a weekend retreat in Estes Park, Colorado, thus the name. This is designed for open discussion among enthusiasts and practitioners, not a vendor sales pitch.
