Learn about Big Data at free Strata Online conference
O’Reilly is hosting a free Strata Online Conference next week and you’re invited.
The conference page sets up the event as follows:
Big Data is a huge disruptor. An algorithm can level established competitors; the resulting insight can upend an entire industry. In the second Strata OLC, we’ll look at how lean startups and tech giants are rewriting the rules of business by mining their knowledge of customers, partners, and markets. We’ll see how Big Data services tear down barriers to entry, and which verticals are most vulnerable to attacks by data-literate startups. And we’ll look at on-demand platforms for collecting, cleaning, and analyzing vast data stores.
This quick paced half day conference will include a tutorial on “Building Data Startups“, a panel discussion on “Turning Bits into Dollars, Yen, or Euros“, a couple of real-world application discussions with Foursquare and Zynga, and a discussion on “Cloud Big Data Platforms” from Amazon which will presumably focus upon AWS.
