In this talk, we will take participants through a hands-on lab going from raw data to graph processing in GraphLab Create. We will use data from a Kaggle competition and show how to explore it, visualize it, and perform graph analytics on it using GraphLab Create. Please bring your laptop and GraphLab Create (http://graphlab.com/products/create/) already installed. Along the way we will also discuss where we are headed with GraphLab Create, and will demo a couple unreleased features.
