Big Data Developer Day

  • Mar 27, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • IBM


Join us and participate in an exclusive Big Data Developer Day hosted by the IBM Big Data team.   Open source Apache Hadoop is a great framework for distributed processing of large data sets. But there’s a difference between "playing" with big data versus solving real problems. The reality is that Hadoop alone might not be enough. Experience IBM’s enterprise-class Hadoop product, InfoSphere BigInsights, which enhances open source Hadoop with required enterprise capabilities including: analytics, visualization, security, standard SQL, enterprise HBase, developer/admin tools, learn about the role of Big Data in MotionBig Data Exploration and more. The morning session will include interactive Big Data use case discussions, an overview of what is big data, live demonstrations of key Big Data components (Big Data at Rest, Big Data in Motion).

and, in the afternoon, get hands-on with Big Data using InfoSphere BigInsights Quick Start Edition and InfoSphere Streams Quick Start Edition with guidance from development experts. This is a unique opportunity to develop skills and learn about exciting technologies and techniques that you can immediately take back to your organization.

This event is FREE. Breakfast, Lunch and snacks will be provided.

    The InfoSphere Stream is very similar to the flow based programming work from J Paul Morrison ( who happened to work in IBM in the 6o's/70's era. For those who are interested in FBP there is a regular monthly FBP meetup in downtown Toronto area :)
