Big Data Analytics Sydney Meetup 27 Aug

SUMMARY

This meetup is a joint event with Big Data Analytics (Sydney) group and YOW! We now have three speakers lined up to continue the journey into a world of Big Data Analytics. We are very fortunate to have this month’s event co-sponsored by YOW!, NICTA and DiUS, so there will be an ample supply of beer and pizza! Hope that you can all join us for what is shaping up to be another great meetup.
