Data Day Austin Conference

Hi Folks

We are co-hosting the Data Day Austin Conference on January 29th with GeekAustin and Riptano – http://datadayaustin.eventbrite.com/

This event will be our January Meeting. The Schedule is still being finalized, but you can see the speakers being added in realtime at the EventBrite link. The conference is hands on. i.e. Bring your laptops.

The intent is that when you leave you will actually be able to do the things being presented.

These skills are in extremely short supply and we want to cement Austin’s position as a premiere destination for Big Data. This is why we are putting this on. Quite frankly, the amount of people available with these skills is not commensurate with the demand for them, This is the perfect event to bring your coworkers and friends along to in order to help them become proficient in working with Big Data. I’m also hoping this event will be a catalyst that helps grow our local Big Data community for this coming year.

Lastly, some Big Data events on the horizon:

O’Reilly Strata Conference – Feb 1-3, Santa Clara, CA –
