Event Description

The Science of Big Data - Oct. 30th

In the last few years, we’ve seen a huge explosion in the amount of data being tracked and stored. Data from purchases, web site browsing patterns, job data, climate and financial statistics, and much more. Your social media interactions are also available from Facebook, Twitter, and other sources. Even governments have exposed data, for example the Open Government Initiative.

Learn about Data Science

In this Chariot Solutions event, we turn our focus to the science of processing and understanding huge amounts of data. Join Stuart Sierra, Cliff Moon, Mark Headd and Tom Santero as they show you tools and techniques for accessing data using techniques like Map/Reduce (and the Hadoop open-source project), NoSQL databases such as Riak, and even how to deal with streams of operational data and reacting to network and system outages in real time.

Register today and learn about this emerging field of data analysis, trending, and discovery.
