Panel discussion about big data uses and weaknesses.

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Perhaps several members might join in a panel discussion about how their company uses big data and about some of the areas where big data might still need improvement? Might even get a large use-case company with their vendor of choice to sponsor the discussion?

    I just found out about this event. It looks good. Perhaps a meetup event could be created for it?

    We've posted a panel talk that the ATL Data Science group is hosting, and there are several more panel discussions happening during Big Data Week - make sure to check those out and we'll still be looking to do another panel later this summer. (Til then I'm going to delete this meeting so I can make room for confirmed events.) Thanks for all your support!

    This was meant as a suggestion. (Are there a few members who might be willing to share their specific big data experiences to illustrate strengths and weaknesses in Hadoop offerings and add-on product compatibilities?)

      Hi Jennifer, I love the suggestion! I'm one of the organizers of this group, so I'll include your idea in my next call for speakers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
