Hack/Reduce on Friday

From: Paul H.

Hi

More details to follow this week - as we work out more details.

The task is to provide data for a 'South West Big Data' infographic which I will create on Saturday. With a set of t-shirts for the winning fact or set of facts that we derive.

The themes are still available on the survey which I will keep open until tomorrow.

We will be utilising the datasets on Amazon and data.gov probably as we are going to struggle to get enough in-house hardware in time for friday:

http://aws.amazon.com/datasets

Please choose a dataset you wish to have available and I will ensure it is.

I will be fronting the money for the AWS time, so if there are any sponsors that want to donate...

:)

With the numbers I will be looking at teams of 4 or 5 people, preferably with similar language skills and a mix of experience.

Volunteeers

I would like a couple of volunteers to help with the environment setup and basic troubleshooting for the teams, to get them going. If you are up for it then please let me know.

Can I get a quick poll as to how many people have used AWS and your skill levels so that I can mix up the teams accordingly?

Cheers

-- Paul
