    Really gutted I couldn't make this guys! My company Appster is working on some mindblowing big data projects and it is fascinating to see the value that can be added on an enterprise level. I was recently at the BigData conference at CeBit and spoke to a lot of CIOs that are desperate to find solutions for their companies--lots of exciting start-up potential in this space!!

    I'm with Alex (below) why don't we start a bit of an group so we can exchange ideas and information?

      great Idea Alex and Josiah... I will do so over the weekend! Thanks and look forward to hearing more about your Appster projects Josiah...maybe a future meetup discussion if you're able to present.

    Fernando, organisation 10/10

    Talks really good and informative as well. Got some really good leads about stuff I want to investigate further.

    An option could be to create an associated LinkedIn group, in which we could have a forum and do some Q/A between meetups. It would also be good if you could publish the results of the surveys to learn a bit about the group and interests.

    Big Data Folk and Data masters!
    Our 2nd presenter/spot pulled out a few days ago due to work travel requirements so as backup, I have a HP EA available to present related to TOTN if required.

    However/more importantly - if anyone in this group would like to present on a use case/customer experience related to TOTN, now is your chance. Please put up your hand ASAP by contacting me on[masked] (20-30 mins).

    If no-one is keen to present, the HP presentation will go ahead on the night for the 2nd presenter spot.

    Thanks all and look forward to meeting you, eating some food and enjoying the night.

    PS - Seperately, if anyone would like to record the night and has access to a video cam to record all the presentations, please let me know - appreciated in advance, seeya soon!

    Cheers,
    Fernando[masked]

    we're all full up guys, look forward to meeting you all next week!

    seems the meetup is a pretty hot event so I've opened up the meetup to 90 people. I don't expect everyone who RSVP'd to turn up on the night but if 80-90 people RSVP and half turn up, then we still have a good turn up.

    Regardless, bumped up RSVP from 70 to 90!
    See you all soon.

    Cheers,
    Fernando

    Hi Adrian,
    no problem. Hope to see you at a future event. I'm considering recording the sessions and posting up to a youtube channel but unsure atm. I'll confirm if that's possible/likely soon.

    Thanks Adrian and have a great day/remaining week!

    Would love to attend June 20 event, but I have a clash.

    Hi All,
    To further introduce myself and my role in this group, Fernando Paul, HP Lead Solution Architect focussing on Big Data services for South Pacific region. No illusions/smoke and mirrors, I'm relatively new to Big Data as compared with the majority of members. I've had 14 years of Enterprise Infrastructure experience and 6 months ago completed Hadoop (Cloudera) training, recently HP Vertica training and have previous experience designing/deploying Business Objects XI3 within Banking and Retail, along with previously running a small consulting business focussed on BI and Infrastructure services.

    I'm here to learn a great deal from the group over time and give back by contributing (ongoing) as facilitator of these meetups, hopefully continuing to grow the Big Data community in Melbourne, Australia.

    I look forward to meeting you on June 20th, till then enjoy!

    Cheers,
    Fernando
