What we're about

Previously known as Hadoop and Big Data in Manchester.

This is a group for anyone interested in Big Data. Great for those who are based in Manchester and surrounding areas.

Whatever your interest... whether you've got many years experience or are simply starting out on your big data journey this group might just be the thing you need.

Developers, DBAs, Architects, Statisticians, Mathematicians... anyone who has a genuine interest in meeting up to share the knowledge should join.

If you want to get involved and present some cool ideas or organise an speaker to attend a meeting then great. Likewise if you just want to come along to soak up the vibe and some great knowledge sharing - that's great too!
