Big Data is exploding into our industry and these skills are increasingly in demand. Much of our existing body of knowledge needs to be updated, however as Big Data solutions present a number of unique challenges. In this half-day workshop we start with the question “What is Big Data?” and “How do big data solutions differ from traditional data architectures.” We then dive into core Hadoop technologies to tackle your Big Data challenges and dive into several tools and technologies for distributed processing of large datasets.
The Big Data Space is rapidly changing and with a seemingly dizzying number of technology choices, one might not know where to begin. Our goal with this half-day workshop is to give you an overview of a number of technologies, their respective strengths and weaknesses, and enough knowledge to make informed decisions and built great tech!
For nearly 20 years, Michael was a software engineer moonlighting as a magician. Now he's a magician moonlighting as a tech leader/software engineer. In both endeavors he has dedicated himself to mastery and has gained deep insights both from his eclectic interests, entrepreneurial spirit, and experience that spans the full stack, the entire project lifecycle, and several technologies.
His time is equally divided between performing around the world, jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, and building software that doesn't suck.
