Big Data TechCon in Boston: Big Data tools and insights


At the beginning of April, I attended Big Data TechCon, a meeting aimed at teaching big data tools. I definitely learned a lot, in particular about the pitfalls in big data analytics. It was good to meet people from vastly different industries who were all united by the fact that they had some kind of ‘big data’ in their field. I attended the meeting with a free pass from KDnuggets, which I won by participating in a data science poll organized by Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro – thanks a lot!

I was recently asked to become a columnist for Dataconomy, a big data website that targets European big data practitioners. I wrote my first Dataconomy contribution about my experiences at Big Data TechCon. If you’re interested, check it out here!

They even gave me a certificate of completion for the meeting!
