 Building Data Products

Josh Wills - Senior Director of Data Science, Cloudera

Data scientists, the professionals who straddle the line between statistician and software engineer, are in demand like never before. This scarcity of talent drives organizations to ensure that their data scientists focus on building the tools to empower a broad class of users to ask more detailed questions and make valid inferences from large data sets. In this talk, we will give an overview of the current best practices for creating these analytical applications on Hadoop.
