We just learned that Wenming Ye (@wenmingye, blog) will be in town in July and we can't resist taking advantage of the opportunity to host him as a speaker. Wenming is an expert in Big Data and Hadoop and he will be speaking about the Windows Azure Hadoop offering (called HDInsight) which is an on-demand service that works in concert with other cloud assets.
Come join us as Wenming explains what this is, how it works, and how we can take advantage of it in our own applications.

Practical Big Data and Big Compute
There’s a proliferation of Weapons of Mass Data Processing. Hadoop employs disk-based batch processing for large scale data analytics bounded only by hardware. However, real-world problems need solutions that bridge the gap between batch and now.
In this introductory talk, we will provide an overview on Map Reduce, in-memory, NoSQL tools, and their roles in solving real-time analytics problems. In addition, we'll cover in detail on how to get started on popular Big data tools, HDInsight, STORM, and SPARK on Windows Azure.
