If you’re interested in big data and big data integration, next week will be a great opportunity to learn about all things big data and Hadoop at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, California. In addition to some great sessions and keynotes, including a talk on “Hadoop’s Impact on the Future of Data Management” from Cloudera co-founder and CTO Amr Awadallah, SnapLogic will be sponsoring the event and giving away over $1,000 worth of prizes to winners of our photo booth / social media contest. Be sure to stop by and get your photo taken as you strive to “swim in the data lake,” and check out the full conference schedule here.
We’ll also have a brief speaking slot of our own in the Solutions Showcase Theater from our Chief Data Scientist and in-house Hadoop expert, Greg Benson, whose session will be: “Jump into the Data Lake with Hadoop-Scale Data Integration.”
