Update: MapR has had to cancel due to a client engagement, they will not be able to attend and present this evening. We apologize for the last minute notice, we were just informed of this and are sharing it in like. We'll still have the meetup as planned - for anyone who still wants to come out and network, we'll be there, but there will be no formal presentation this evening.
Hold the date for the March Chicago Big Data Analytics Networking and Presentation event. Thanks to all who joined us and presented at the Open Mic night on February 10th, great turn out and really excellent presentations from all of the participants. Many of the decks are now posted on the event link, and video of the event is forthcoming and will be posted asap.
We're back at Zella on Monday, March 24th! Drink specials include
