Why are you interested in joing Big Data in West Michigan

At Calvin College where we are designing a degree in data science, and this topic is certainly part of that. Also, we have added Big Data as a covered subject in our Information Systems curriculum.

Have you implemented solutions using Big Data technologies previously?

Primarily we have worked with "small" Big Data in classroom research.

How can we help further your knowledge and career?

I would like to know of the cloud resources that are utilized, and I especially am interested in current projects or case studies.

Are you ready for the excitement? exciting will it be? I jumped out of good airplanes at one time for a living. Will it be just as exciting?


I'm on the faculty at Calvin College. Prior to these past ten years there, I was a software developer, team lead, systems administrator, plant manager and a host of other titles in both private industry and the public sector.
