Event Details

As the internet approaches 1 trillion connected gigabytes, we’re not in Kansas anymore. The data deluge poses important questions:

How will we manage all this information? Is the relational database doomed? How will we synchronize it? Will we all need to migrate to NoSQL stores? Or will the new play along nicely with 40 years of relational history?

Who will manage this information? Will we all have to own our own massive infrastructure, will we rent it, or just call the APIs of somebody else?

How will we analyze this information? Do we all need to learn Erlang and Map-Reduce, or will a new set of easy-to-use tools spring up, just like the spreadsheet came to the rescue a long time ago? Will programmers write code for distributed hash tables, relational databases, document stores, graph databases or all of the above?

Who will we govern all that information? Who will keep it secure, and private, and auditable? Who determines what can and cannot be correlated? Who will watch the watchmen?

This event is for:
owners and managers of a large amount of data, including web, social media, health, pharmaceuticals, astronomy, government etc.
developers and users of Big Data technologies, including NoSQL databases, Map-Reduce algorithms, data mining, server farms etc.
stewards and guardians of Big Data, including legal and business professionals.
Together we can actually dive in and figure some of these challenges out.
If you are interested in a conference where keynote speaker after keynote speaker is telling you how wonderful their company and products are, Big Data Workshop is not for you. Big Data Workshop is there for everybody to speak and listen, to discuss, to engage, to think and to re-think.
The agenda will be created live on the day of the event by attendees.  We have partnered with Kaliya Hamlin who has designed and facilitated over 100 unconferences for professional technical communities.


Conference starts at 9am, breakfast and lunch provided.
