I run the more strategic and less technical Forum, which is run through The Australian Big Data Group on LinkedIn.
Thanks to Joao for sharing the information. We're meeting downstairs at the City Hotel tomorrow evening from 6:30 onwards. As the downstairs is not as big, we do have limited availability.
It's always great to see new faces at the Forum, but please be advised that it's not a technical discussion, so anyone who found last night too technical, and were hoping for a more strategic or conceptual talk on 'Big Data', then it will suit you nicely. If you like the tech talk, then this meetup group is for you!
There are a few spots left, so if you would like to be added to the guest-list for the evening, please drop me a line at [masked] and I will add you to the list.

Very much enjoyed tonight's talks. It's always great to hear of real world implementations and understand confidentiality often prevents sharing of such experiences so I really appreciate the efforts of all speakers.
The format of 1) here's the business problem we were trying to solve, 2) here's the general approach and 3) here's the actual code is in my mind a fantastic approach, especially given that there are umpteen tools around and varying audience experience.
