    Superb speakers. Industry veterans are scared of changes that demand a paradigm shift in the way money flows in economy. Hadoop is democratization of computational power. It will not depend on how the money sucking CEO's determine to keep themselves paying, it will depend on how people will accept and adapt to it. Steve Jobs understood that and his business model of delivering power of programming to people is very very successful.
    Hadoop is the future and its here.

    It was very inspiring to learn about Big Data froma a different perspective. Mike Ferguson's talk was very impressive and interesting. We enjoyed a lot.

    Very good talk by Mike Ferguson. Probably the best talk I've heard about Big Data thus far. All in all an excellent meetup although it did run a bit late.

    A couple of the best presentations I've seen in a while. Very interesting topics, presented very well. A lot of good questions from the audience.

    One of the best BigData meetups so far. Bioinformatics analysis is my all time favourite topic and it was great to see Bernard who gave an overview of their work at EBI. Mike, is an industry veteran who presented a very insightful and technology agnostic overview on state of the art in SQL and Hadoop world.
