Big Data Developers.  The Big Data Developer Day - Big Data and the Evolving Data Warehouse, October 31st, registration site is closed. If you have not registered and would like to attend as a walk-in, please email Nancy Berlin - [masked].


Once you have joined the Meetup in NYC, please be sure to register at: in order to secure your space in the Big Data Developer Day on 10/31/13.  Space is limited so please register soon.

Join us on Oct 31, 2013 to participate in an exclusive Big Data Developer Day hosted by the IBM Big Data team.   Open source Apache Hadoop is a great framework for distributed processing of large data sets. But there’s a difference between "playing" with big data versus solving real problems. The reality is that Hadoop alone might not be enough. Experience IBM’s enterprise-class Hadoop product, InfoSphere BigInsights, which enhances open source Hadoop with required enterprise capabilities including: analytics, visualization, security, standard SQL, enterprise HBase, developer/admin tools, and more. The morning session will include interactive discussions and live demonstrations of IBM's view of the evolving Enterprise Data Warehouse and the role of hadoop (aka Data Warehouse Augmentation);

and, in the afternoon, get hands-on with InfoSphere BigInsights Quick Start Edition  with guidance from development experts. This is a unique opportunity to develop skills and learn about exciting technologies and techniques that you can immediately take back to your organization.

This event is FREE.  Breakfast, Lunch and snacks will be provided.

    Good overview of Big Data and the Evolving Warehouse. Would have been nice to have specific demos of Big SQL and HBase if more time. Great information.

    Hi Big Data Geeks,

    Just wanted to remind you that there will be a hands on portion for the event tomorrow. In order for you to transition smoothly to the lab you should download and unzip the BigInsights Quick Start Edition VM.

    If you are new to this don't worry the readme (included in the download) walks you through it or you can watch the following video:

    If you run into issues we can help you out tomorrow, but please give it a try tonight if you have not already done so.

      Looks like the IBM registration for the event closed because we are at capacity. I have asked to see if there can be a stand by list.
