We are especially excited to announce and share that big data is coming to SXSW. Here are the panels we like:
Pete Skomoroch of DataWrangling: Petabyte As Platform, Making Big Data Accessible Online – We have long been fans of Pete Skomoroch’s work, this is your chance to hear from him about web applications built on massive datasets.
Michael Driscoll of Dataspora: Cloud Crunching Big Data with HIVE/Hadoop and R and Become a Sexy Data Geek in One Week – Another friend of ours, Michael, will be talking about how to use the right tools to massage and produce results from big datasets, and profiles what you need to do to be a data geek.
Dave Bowker of Designing the News: Engaging Data Visualizations and Infographic Communication – Glad to see some data viz stuff at SXSW.
Leave a comment if you know of any other good ones.
