Introduction to Big Data by Nate Byrnes

This is the kick off meeting for Buffalo Big Data!!

Charlie Wertz of Buffalo Lab (http://www.meetup.com/buffalolab/) graciously allowed to us to share a meeting with us.  The speaker, Nate Brynes is a mutual friend.

The next meetup will be at 7:00 PM on Thursday March 27 in Talbert Hall  107 on the UB North Campus. Talbert Hall is between the Natural Sciences Complex and Capen Hall. If you enter the campus on Flint Rd, it is a little to the left of the Flint Loop. You will probably park in either the Fronczak or Hochstetter lot. No permit is required for parking in student lots at this time of day.

Nate Byrnes will discuss what big data is, where it comes from, and some things that are be done with it as well as some of the how it is being done.

Currently the lead data analytics consultant for Rochester's Leveraging Technology, Nate Byrnes has been working with and supporting applications with large volumes of data since 2005 when he was a data warehouse developer for ClientLogic (now Sitel). After that introduction to what he thought was a lot of Data, Nate joined Netezza, where he was given the chance to work on some much larger data problems. Tackling issues from multi-terabyte data warehouses, to large scale video computer vision, opened his eyes to the challenges and possibilities presented by "big data."

    Hi. Anyone has any connections/been to the meetups in Toronto that are associated with Big Data?
    Anyone interested in going/forging those connections? I would be interested in connecting with them, especially this one http://www.meetup.com/DataforGood/

    Hi~ I'm confused. Is this meetup on March 27 (as appeared on top of this page (on calendar)) or on March 17 as appeared in the introduction section of this page. I'm assuming it's 27th? Cause it's a Thursday, instead of 17, Monday. Thank you for arranging the meet-up!
