Many other keynotes, talks, and interviews during the Strata + Hadoop World videos are available on the Youtube playlist.
Strata + Hadoop World 2014 is currently going on in New York City this week. Some of the keynotes will be live streamed this morning. The live streaming starts at 8:45 Eastern Standard Time. Also, keynotes will be live streamed tomorrow (Oct. 17, 2014) as well.
The keynotes are always great, and the line-up this year includes speakers from Cloudera, Pinterest, Platfora, Intel and others. So, if you did not make it to NYC, the live stream is the next best thing.
