I was asked to be co-organizer of the new Los Angeles Big Data meetup group. The focus of the group will be to highlight how enterprises are adopting the big data technology stack, especially Hadoop. If you’re in the LA area, please considering joining up and attending our upcoming meetups. If you’re outside of LA, we will make an effort to make slides available for download, and when possible audio or video recordings of the presentations.
UPDATE! 2/18/2014 – the first meeting of the LA Big Data group was announced today. It will take place on March 26 over at Cross Campus. I will be presenting a talk “Introduction to Big Data.” I’m really looking forward to the success of this brand new group.
UPDATE! 3/26/2014 – the LABDUG meetup was a resounding success with its 300+ members. The venue at the new Cross Campus location was superb. The slides for my talk are available HERE.
