Do you work in marketing, sales, PR, HR, recruiting, or non-IT capacity?

No

Are you based in London or travel to London monthly?

I'm based in Guildford, and commute to London daily

Are you direclty involved in a data science project? Are you doing any data science hacking, development, implementation? Are you a quant? Data miner? Statistician? Software developer? IT engineer? BI Analyst?

My current work contract is dealing with large amounts of e-commerce data (both products and user data), and therefore I'm experimenting with Hadoop/HBase and Mahout. I'm also currently using Lingpipe for entity extraction from product descriptions and reviews

Why are you interested in joining this data science community?

A friend recommended this group may be of interest to me, and I'm keen to learn more about Big Data

Introduction

I'm a freelance software development consultant, primarily working with the Java stack, MySQL, MongoDB, and Solr/Lucene. I'm realise that Data Science is becoming essential within modern software applications and am keen to learn more about this.
