I'm based in Guildford, and commute to London daily
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
A friend recommended this group may be of interest to me, and I'm keen to learn more about Big Data
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.
