Why CSV?

This conference is about all kinds of tools and data - not just CSV ones. So why call it CSV,Conf? Because we think CSV embodies certain important qualities that set the tone for the event:

  • Simplicity: CSV is incredibly simple - perhaps the simplest structured data format there is
  • Openness: the CSV 'standard' is well-known and open - free for anyone to use
  • Easy to use: CSV can be used from almost every data tool out there from Excel to Hadoop
  • Hackable: CSV is text-based and can be manipulated from a wide range of standard tools
  • Big or small: files range from KBs to TBs and its line-based nature make it perfect for incremental processing



Registration begins at 9:15, presentations begin at 9:45 and the event finishes by 17:00.

The schedule is available as two CSV files, each lays out the schedule in a different way:
