Big Data : Overview (Part 1)

Please join me for a series of talk on Big Data with the South Shore .NET Users Group. I hope you can make it.

Big Data has become the new buzzword like “Agile” and “Cloud”. Like those two others, it’s a transformative technology. We’ll be discussing:

  • What is it?
  • Technology key words
  • HDFS
  • Hadoop
  • MapReduce
  • ElasticSearch

This will be part 1 of 2 (at least). This first talk will not be overly technical. We’ll go over the concepts and terms you’ll encounter when considering a big data solution.

UPDATE: Slides are available here:
