Big Data for Big Brother. Now playing. At a computer near you. How to help water the tree of liberty using statistics?
or use SAS software
SAS/CIA from the last paragraph of
I came across this lovely analytics company. Think Big Analytics. and I really liked their lovely explanation of the whole she-bang big data etc stuff. Because Hadoop isnt rocket science and can be made simpler to explain and deploy.
Check them out yourself at http://www.thinkbiganalytics.com/resources_reference
Also they have an awesome series of lectures coming up-
Over three days, explore the Big Data tools, technologies and techniques which allow organisations to gain insight and drive new business opportunities by finding signal in their data. Using Amazon Web Services, you’ll learn how to use the flexible map/reduce programming model to scale your analytics, use Hadoop with Elastic MapReduce, write queries with Hive, develop real world data flows with Pig and understand the operational needs of a production data platform
What is Cassandra? Why is this relevant to analytics?
It is the next generation Database that you want your analytics software to be compatible with. Also it is quite easy to learn. Did I mention that if you say “I know how to Hadoop/Big Data” on your resume, you just raised your market price by an extra 30 K$. I mean there is a big demand for analysts and statisticians who can think/slice data from a business perspective AND write that HADOOP/Big Data code.
How do I learn more?
Whats in it for you?

On Decisionstats.com This is what I love to write about! I find it cool.
It’s been almost a year since the first Apache Cassandra Summit in San Francisco. Once again we’ve reserved the beautiful Mission Bay Conference Center. Because the Cassandra community has grown so much in the last year, we’re taking the entire venue. This year’s event will not only include Cassandra, but also Brisk, Apache Hadoop, and more.
We have two rooms set aside for presentations.This year we also have multiple rooms set aside for Birds of a Feather talks, committer meetups, and other small discussions.
We’ve sent out surveys to all the attendees of last year’s conference, as well as a few hundred other members of the community. Below are some of the topics people have requested so far.
If you have topics you’d like to see covered, or you would like to submit a presentation, send a note to email@example.com.
We’ll be providing lunch as well as continuous beverage service — so that you won’t have to take your mind outside the information windtunnel.
We’ll also be hosting a post event party. Details coming shortly.
Submissions and suggestions: If you wish to propose a talk or presentation, or have a suggestion on a topic you’d like to see covered, send a note to Lynn Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org
