We are excited to hold the next “DuckCon” DuckDB user group meeting in Seattle, WA, sponsored by MotherDuck. The meeting will take place on August 15, 2024 (Thursday) in the SIFF Cinema Egyptian.

As is traditional in DuckCons, we will start with a talk from DuckDB’s creators Hannes Mühleisen and Mark Raasveldt about the state of DuckDB. This will be followed by presentations by DuckDB users. In addition, we will have several lightning talks from the DuckDB community.
