19:30-20:30 Prototyping using the Hadoop stack - Russel Jurney
We are joining forces with the "Data Science NL" meetup in Utrecht. The first 2 speakers are data science dudes.
Russell Jurney (Hadoop Evangelist at Hortonworks) will present about rapidly prototyping analytics applications using the Hadoop stack to return to agility in light of the ever deepening analytics stack. The presentation uses Hadoop, Pig, NoSQL stores and lightweight web frameworks to rapidly connect end-users to real insights. Topics covered include writing User Defined Functions in Pig and publishing insights mined on Hadoop to NoSQL stores like MongoDB, HBase, and Cassandra, and using Python, Ruby, JRuby and Node.js to present data mined on Hadoop in a web browser.
Russel is writing a book called Agile Data. He is a former data scientist at LinkedIn, and now works for Hortonworks.
