    Are we able to access the presentations somehow? I know someone had mentioned sharing the information or at least an overview. Great information from a student perspective, a lot of interest in this area in my major at OSU.

    Shared good information with clearly presented slide presentation which was easy to follow and informative on industry issues to learn from. Well worth the time. Plus they had BIG chocolate chip cookies to go with the BIG Data speakers.... Nice touch! Thank you.

    The snow, if we get it, will sort out the serious people from the Not so serious ones! Great way to see who the risk takers are too! Just drive carefully. Look forward to the meet up.

    Looks very exciting. Hope Samma is able to present their products and service offerings. Will be particularly interested in visualization, which always seems to me to be the weak link in the data analysis process. Thanks
