    My first meetup here and it was better than great. I enjoyed all 5 presentations, particularly the evolution of data from 1010 data, so impressive. I also enjoyed and appreciated Targyros's sharing his valuation experience. Great meetup, thank you Mark, thank you all speakers, organizers, and Bloomberg. Will be back!

    Matt chooses outliers with compelling technologies that frequently prove to be successful. The presenters for this meetup were no exception

    Good roster of presenters except for the second one who passed up a chance for presenting a higher level data science message.

    One other ques-- unless there is some policy otherwise, could the WiFI ID/password be posted at the meeting as I was unable to log onto it.

      The password is printed at the back of your visitor badge each time.

    Matt, well done, your meetings continue to deliver important and useful content and generate meaningful discussions. Standing Room Only and people waiting outside, Data Driven has arrived, one of the hottest tickets in NYC.

    Bloomberg knows business. The presentations were high quality. Also the place has an excellent setup for networking. Ohh yea this meetup comes with free drinks and appetizers all night long!

    Several of us that RSVPd are in the lobby. Security won't allow us to go up claiming capacity has been reached.

      No problem. THANKs for organizing this Matt. Hope I get to attend the next one. (Though admittedly showing to the venue to then be turned away felt a little like Christmas was taken away from me while the present was in my hands. Haha)

    As a new one to this meet-up, I didn't know for sure what to expect, but being my very first one, you'd never know it because everyone is friendly and outgoing, and essentially there for the sMe reason you are! Data Driven NYC #24 was a great meet-up, I found it to be very informative from a marketplace & technical aspect; an excellent venue to network with professionals in the same field and/or with the same interests within the arena of big data, business intelligence, analytics,...etc.

    I don't know what the front desk is talking about, I have 4 open seats right next to me!

    I was at Bloomberg around 6:20 and someone at the front desk told me the meetup has reached the capacity...does this happen.before?

    Is there a typical end time, like 8:30 or 9 PM? I mean, how late does this meetup tend to run?

    Also, how much time should we allow to get through security, up to the meeting room, and to get seated, from the time we arrive at the front door of the building? I mean, is 5:45 the presentation start time, or the time we should walk through the front door?

    Finally, is there beer and pizza or snacks or whatever?

      If previous meetups were any indication the sessions start at 630 or 7 and run for an hour. 20 mins each. Usually drinks/food are served.

    A variety of Infrastructures, numerous Frameworks and Databases and Applicances are standards and evoling. Enterprise data is SQL. I'd like hear a few words about migrating forward, using a combination of SQL, NoSQL, Hadoop, MongoDB, MarkLogic, Teradata for analytics, data sharing and data security.

    given the popularity of this event, can we think of doing simulcast for this? or videotape it and share on YouTube?
