Come along to Sydney ALT.NET for a BIG data night.
I'll be giving a talk on Redshift:
Started to hit the point where your transactional database is not the right place for running reporting queries and experimental data science? Keen to chuck in more data from web logs, CRMs, facebook, etc so you can start learning more about your users? Come along to Sydney ALT.NET on June 24th to see an easy way to do it with AWS Redshift, mapping SQL and some simple scripting duct tape.
We also have a co-presented talk on Azure's Hadoop implementation, HD Insights and Power BI: The Power of the Elephant in the Microsoft Cloud given by Jibin Johnson and Simon Waight from the Azure User Group.
From 6pm at ThoughtWorks Sydney office Lvl8 51 Pitt St, 24 June 14.
Remember to get your free ticket. See you there!
