Introduction to Big Data
Location:Grand Ballroom - Salon IDuration:Full DayAbstract:Today data is exploding faster than the technology used to create it. Having the ability to harness that data, derive insight, and react intelligently is becoming a core competency for innovation in almost any industry. Working with massive amounts of data lends itself to the elasticity of cloud computing. This tutorial will give you a hands-on walk through of realtime data services that enable developers to ingest, store, and analyze data at massive scales using Amazon's Cloud. There are no minimum requirements for your laptop -- all you'll need is an AWS account where you'll be able to spin-up resources, glean insights from your data, and tear down your environment at the end of the day. Having a Java IDE and some Linux experience is all the development experience you'll need in this technical introduction to the ecosystem of big data.
