About DEDAG

Why did we set up the Data Engineering and Data Architecture Group?

After many successful decades of working in the data industry, we want to help more people to understand what is important in order to deliver successful data projects, and to support the data community with a peer based forum to share professional experiences and look to future developments in our industry.


We will run events and workshops that will empower data architects and data engineers on their data journey.


Our events can be broadly categorised into two topics:


Knowledge regarding data architecture and design – from foundational to expert


Hands on workshops on tools and technologies for data architects and data engineers

DEDAG is founded on a welcoming, supportive, and respectful environment.


  • No promotions or spam : Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links are not permitted and may result in removal from the group.

  • Be kind & courteous : We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

  • No hate speech or bullying : Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.
