MiniBar Monthly Meetup - Big Data

  • March 22, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This MiniBar will focus entirely on Big Data.  There is alot of hype regarding Big Data and therefore confusion.  Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data, so much that 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last 2 years.  This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records and mobile phone GPS signals to name a few.

Simply put, Big Data is the concept that datasets have become so large and awkward that traditional database management tools are not fit-for-purpose.  We therefore need new methods such as Hadoop to gain value from all this data.

Francine Bennett, CEO, Mastodon C

Dr Rhys Newman, CTO, eMedia Track

Duncan Ross, Director Data Sciences, Teradata

Emmanuel Marchal, VP Sales, Acunu

Francesco d'Orazio, Chief Innovation Officer, Pulsar/FACE

 

This session will look at ....
·         How to you use Hadoop?
·         Other tools/approaches?
·         Underlying principles?
·         Then how do we implement it?

 

See you there.
Cheers

    I'm trying to organise a group of people interested in learning to program.

    We'll be meeting to discuss and overcome the challenges we encounter in the Udacity "Introduction to Computer Science" online course (http://bit.ly/udacs101), be they homework, in class-exercises, or key concepts. These study groups will be led by an experienced programmer who will assist with our difficulties. The study-groups will be highly practical, and focused on programming - not on being lectured. Drop me an email at [masked] if interested!
