I hope you've all had a good summer. We're starting to plan some HugUK events for this Autumn but for now we've got two great conferences in the next month related to Hadoop, Strata and DeNormalised. We also have a free ticket for each to give away!
The first is DeNormalised NOSQL which is a two-day conference packed with talks and exchanges with experts of NOSQL solutions such as Neo4J, Cassandra, Riak, MongoDB, Couchbase and Voldemort. The conference is over the 20th & 21st of September at The Crypt, Clerkenwell. You can find out more details here http://bit.ly/O70Jfa
For a change to win the Free Ticket please e-mail [address removed] saying you're from the Hadoop User Group and which talk you would like to see the most and why (just a couple of sentences). You've got until Monday 10th to enter, after which time you'll be contacted by the organisers if you've won.
The second is the O'Reilly Strata Conference which is on 1st-2nd October at the Hilton London Metropole covering the trends, tools, new practices, career & culture in data science, as well as the ongoing discussion around ethics, policy, and privacy. You can save 20% as part of the user group with code HUGUK which you can use on strataconf.com/london
We've also got one Free Ticket for Strata to give away to the user group, I'm just sorting out the details for this so I'll let you know soon how that will work.
Keep an eye out for details on the next Hadoop meetup.
