Database Seminar - BIG DATA on March 27, 2014

Update on March 12: This is now a triple header joint meetup.  Don Lee's SQL Server Group and Andy Schneider's new Big Data Group will be joining us. 

This meetup will be at 7:00 PM on Thursday March 27 in Talbert Hall  107 on the UB North Campus. Talbert Hall is between the Natural Sciences Complex and Capen Hall. If you enter the campus on Flint Rd, it is a little to the left of the Flint Loop. You will probably park in either the Fronczak or Hochstetter lot. No permit is required for parking in student lots at this time of day.

Nate Byrnes will discuss what big data is, where it comes from, and some things that are be done with it as well as some of the how it is being done.

Currently the lead data analytics consultant for Rochester's Leveraging Technology, Nate Byrnes has been working with and supporting applications with large volumes of data since 2005 when he was a data warehouse developer for ClientLogic (now Sitel). After that introduction to what he thought was a lot of Data, Nate joined Netezza, where he was given the chance to work on some much larger data problems. Tackling issues from multi-terabyte data warehouses, to large scale video computer vision, opened his eyes to the challenges and possibilities presented by "big data."

We've been settling for light refreshments and will do the same. doolli is our current sponsor.

About a dozen brave and hardy souls showed up on February 27 for Databases: Distributed, Federated, Partitioned and Broken! We decided to substitute a review of an interesting project Wayne and Chris are working on, involving reliability in a multi server environment. The planned talk is rescheduled for April 24. See
