#7 questions to Carsten about him and the DATA festival



# With which three words would you describe the DATA festival?



# Why did you want to launch the DATA festival?

We wanted to create a forum for concrete learning from and exchange with fellow data lovers, combining honest and open know how exchange for data science, data engineering and data strategy with a fun experience to meet and share our passion for data, analytics & AI.


# What was your best DATA festival-moment over the last years?

The DATA festival parties are surely well remembered but feeling the positive atmosphere and energy in the room when hitting the stage to kick off the festival still gives me goosebumps today..


# How would you like to have an impact on the DATA community?

Sharing our best practices and lessons learned as well as creating a platform for the best minds in Data & AI to share, learn and connect


# What is your passion besides DATA?

Analytics? Just kidding. My five children keep me busy when I am not working at and on BARC, the DATA festival and other entrepreneurial activities.


# What is your festival must have?

Time, to postpone all the other important to dos and really concentrate on listening to the speakers and connecting with our fellow data lovers.


# If I would not be working with DATA, I…

might have become an academic in information science, or a mountain guide…


…Thanks for sharing your #passion for #data, Carsten!
