I hope to meet other big data practitioners, share what I've learned, and learn from them.
Google, of course!
I was writing software to process billions of clickstream events in real time back in 99. Seriously. I've done work with some gnarly big data problems at places that do huge volumes - DoubleClick, Visa, Telco's - and Big Dollars too - Fannie Mae, 2 of the top 3 banks, etc.
Hi, I'm Andrew Lewis, a longtime big data guy. I have been doing projects with big data for almost 15 years, mostly with proprietary tools, but as big fan of open source, I'm passionate about democratizing big data through Hadoop and other tools.
