After the first successful session on 13th April, it is time to plan for the next one.This time we plan to have sessions in two tracks. The idea is to help those members who could not make it to the first session. While introducing a new topic for the members who attended the April 13th Session - we will be doing a recap in parallel for the members who missed the first session. After the first hour both tracks will be merged to continue with the subsequent topics.
Tentative agenda as follows:
3pm - 4pm For members who could not attend the last session on 13th April, there will be
a recap of Introduction to Big Data/Hadoop.
3pm-4pm Introduction to Statistical and Predictive Analytics using tools like SAS and R. This is for those who attended last session on 13th April.
4pm - 4.30pm Hadoop in action - Weblog analytics Demo.
4.30 -5.30pm Social Media Analytics - Presentation and Demo
5.30 Onwards - Hands-on Hadoop workshop for those interested.
So mark your calendars and send in your RSVP's asap - along with the choice for Track1 or Track2.
A heads-up on some of the upcoming topics:
1. Hadoop on cloud - AWS/EMR
2. Cloudera and Hortonworks.
3. SAP HANA
4. IBM BigInsights
5. No-SQL Databases
6. Big Data and open source stack
Further suggestions for topics are welcome. We are also looking for volunteers to speak on some of these topics.
Hope to see you all soon.
