I was a biology major studying bioinformatics before I made the switch to finance. I've always had a passion for solving problems that required huge datasets. Looking to see what open source developments have been made in Big Data.

Introduction about yourself? Role, responsibility, industry, etc.

Currently trying to buy things cheaper then I sell them at a sell-side shop. Trained as a scientist that specialized in bioinformatics and evolutionary theory. I'm game for any problems that have an overwhelming sample space.

Why are you interested in Open Analytics?

Looking to brush up on recent advances in open source Big Data tools. Excited to meet fellow Big Data enthusiasts.

Do you currently use open source technologies (ie - Hadoop, MongoDB)? If so, which?

I do not, but I'm looking to learn.

Are there specific topics you would like to see covered?
