This is meetup in Christchurch, New Zealand for anybody who is interested in Big Data, Machine Learning, scalable data processing and analytics, and its' business applications.
The meetup started as a meetup focused on Apache Spark. Later we have found there is significant interest in Big Data topic and decided to extend the scope beyond of Spark. We help one another learn and discuss various Big Data-related projects, technologies, tools, news, business use cases and applications. We cover tools like Apache Spark, Apache Cassandra, Kafka, ElasticSearch, and everything related to distributed data processing technologies and related business challenges.
