About the Meetup

DuckDB has become an increasingly popular database in recent years, especially in the world of analytics (OLAP) and data science. But what’s all the hype about?

Find out at this meetup (the first of its kind in Central/Eastern Europe!!!) with special guest speaker: Mehdi Ouazza, developer advocate from MotherDuck, the company that builds SaaS using DuckDB.

But how do we integrate DuckDB and MotherDuck into real services? Find out from GoodData’s Jan Soubusta. Learn how analytics platform, GoodData, uses MotherDuck as a data source and leverages the power of DuckDB for the recently released FlexQuery engine to deliver truly responsive analytics to end users.

Want an even more hands-on experience? Join us for a workshop with MotherDuck’s Mehdi Ouazza before the meetup. Space is limited. More information below. ⬇️


Mehdi Ouazza, data engineer and developer advocate at MotherDuck, is coming to Prague, and on this occasion, he will offer a FREE hands-on workshop on DuckDB.

During the 1h30 session, you will learn all the basics you need to know about DuckDB and engage in pragmatic use cases. By the end of the session, you’ll be equipped to explore new use cases on your own and start analyzing your data effectively.


  • Your favorite laptop;
  • Basic knowledge of SQL language;
  • Being comfortable with using a terminal (optional).

Note: While the content will be delivered in English, feel free to ask questions in French during the workshop, as the instructor is fluent in both languages.

Mehdi Ouazza

Developer Advocate

DuckDB has gained significant traction in the data world. But where does DuckDB fit into your data stack? Is it replacing some components, or is it filling certain gaps? Mehdi talks about pragmatic use cases where DuckDB is being used.

Does GoodData look like the better fit?
