    Here is my talk, on Map Reduce:

    As side notes:
    - in June there is, a 5-week training in data science; I attended the previous edition and it was great;
    - and the map of programming languages and techniques:

    Kudos to the speakers and organizers... not only the content is great but also the formal quality of the presentations is becoming top-notch. Thanks for having taken your time to prepare them!

    Topics were great, but there was not enough time for the presenters to expose the material. Overall it was very good.

    A talk on Google App Engine would be great! It's a fully managed platform as a service, and its awesome! The APIs are powerful and easy to use, and the platform is designed in such a way that you do t have to worry about infrastructure scaling. Ohh, and the No-SQL type Datastore is AWESOME!!

      Michael, it sounds like you're volunteering to give that talk? Excellent, I want to hear it!

    I'd love to have a dynamodb/s3 talk! Anyone has used hadoop?

    March 20, 2013

  • Ramon Navarro B.

    We have two big pyramid apps one on mongodb and one on dynamodb/s3 ( and )

    March 20, 2013

  • Piotr M.

    I can say about: Python for Hadoop @ AWS (a quick, practical "how to") or Python for MongoDB (however, I was playing with it, but never used it in practice).

    March 20, 2013

  • Ramon Navarro B.

    I can talk about a project we developed with scalable pyramid on top of DynamoDB/EC2 using Boto.
