"Big Data" ... Applications From Enterprises to Individuals

Event is on the 1st floor - Horace Mann room.

Many thanks to the below presenters and our event sponsors:

*Microsoft is providing space and drinks/soda/coffee.

*TripAdvisor is sponsoring the pizza.

Wailtlist folks:  Please note that video will be taken and distributed as soon as possible after the event.  Each presenter has their own website, blog, etc. and so I will email out a link to their content.  Please note this may be a day or days depending if the presenter wants to update their slides, etc.  I'm leaving it to the presenters to determine how they wish to upload their presentations and/or videos.

We currently capped the waitlist threshold at 305 (25 from the MongoDB group).   Wednesday I attended the beginning of a PhP event using the same rooms.  I found the room has ~220 seats.  With 300 reservations and estimated 75%+/- 5% to attend out the rsvps, this puts us at ~210 to ~240.   I will send out emails again on Tuesday asking those who may have last minutes plans and can't attend to change their rsvp.

6:30 - 7:00:  Pizza

6:50 - 7:00:  Previews of Upcoming Events - this is akin to when you attend a movie and there are announcements, and so more it is just some things that hopefully will be entertaining as folks come in and get their seats.

7:00 - 7:05:  Acknowledgements

7:05 - 7:20:  Overview of Big Data and Hadoop:  Jeffrey Kelly, who is an industry analyst covering Big Data, will be presenting the state of the industry.  In addition to early adopting web-based companies, he will be covering a variety of "use cases" that are now occurring across more industry verticals.

7:20 - 7:30:  Web/Mobile and Big Data:  Sanjay Vakil, who is a technology manager at Trip Advisor, will be presenting past and current Big Data projects that their team have been developing.

7:30 - 7:55:  Enterprise Case Studies:  Rob Lancaster and Omer Trajman of Cloudera, a company which provides enterprise solutions that extends upon Hadoop functionality, will be presenting a high-level overview of big data and associated applications.  Secondly, they will be presenting a variety of "use cases" including diving into technical details of Hadoop and related software.

8:05 - 8:30:  MongoDB & Hadoop: Aaron Cordova of Interllective, Inc. will be presenting a quick intro to MongoDB, and also provide an overview of text analysis at the Interllective, followed by how they use MongoDB and Hadoop to perform text analysis.

8:30 - 8:50:  Wikepedia "Open Data" Project:  Satish Gopalakrishnan and Vineet Manohar will be presenting their Wikipedia / Hadoop project which they created as part of the Hack/Reduce event this past summer at Microsoft NERD.  Their computer program was voted the coolest hack using Hadoop with open data.

    on point and informative. Very helpful to hear the breadth of use cases and technology stacks that are being integrated with Hadoop.

    Very good. Speakers were well-prepared and there was a relatively broad distribution of talks. Comments:
    (*) I would have liked it to be more about Big Data in general, less about Hadoop.
    (*) Given focus on Hadoop maybe a quick tour of Hadoop suite (MapReduce, HTable, etc.) would have been good.
    (*) Maybe some very simple code examples would have been good in one of the talks (for instance the tag cloud).

    Some of the presentations were devoid of content.

    I would have preferred more detail and fewer use cases.

    Though it started late, and very slowly, once the presentations got going they were very good.
