Vaccination Database Tech Talks - 2021


The previous year was the worst in modern times. But just when we were at our most crestfallen and about to give up, there emerged a new hope. The scientific breakthrough of rapid vaccine development will lead us out of the darkness into a new era. As children of the enlightenment, our moral duty is to take full advantage of our new lease on life and spend our time discussing the latest trends in databases.

The "Vaccination Database Tech Talks" is an on-line seminar series at Carnegie Mellon University with leading developers and researchers of database systems. Each speaker will present the implementation details of their respective systems and examples of the technical challenges that they faced when working with real-world customers.

All talks are on-line and open to the public via Zoom. You do not need to be a current CMU student to attend. Random people off of the internet are especially welcome.

Videos will be posted after each talk.

Time: Mondays @ 4:30pm ET
Location: Zoom (Must Be Authenticated)
Organizer: Andy Pavlo
