New Online Data Summit Coming Fall 2019

A new online conference focused on cloud data technologies is coming this fall. It is not just a conference or webinar, it will be an interactive online platform. The focus of the event is data in the cloud (migrating, storing and machine learning). You can pre-register for the conference now.

Some of the topics from the summit include:

  • Data Science
  • IoT
  • Streaming Data
  • AI
  • Data Visualization

Here is an excerpt from the website:

The public cloud has drastically changed systems design, enabled microservices, and lowered the barrier to entry for big data & analytics.

Learn from companies which have migrated data platforms from on-premise to the cloud. See how they were redesigned to take advantage of endless storage and compute power.

Immerse yourself with the platforms which make modern Data Science and Machine Learning possible. Join your peers to see how their data platforms knocked down the old barriers and transformed how they work

What: Cloud Data Summit
Where: Online (a new conference platform)
When: October 16-17, 2019

Spark Summit 2015 Livestream

Apache Spark is currently one of the hottest technologies in data science. That trend leads the Spark Summit 2015 to be one of the top conferences. Luckily, the conference organizers where kind enough to set up a free Spark Summit 2015 Livestream of the event. Here is a small glimpse of what will be covered:

  • Updates from Matei Zaharia, creator of Spark
  • Spark at NASA
  • Innovation with Spark
  • Three tracks of talks:
    1. Developer
    2. Data Science
    3. Applications
  • And much, much more

The livestream begins today, June 15, 2015, and continues through Wednesday. It appears keynotes and all three tracks will be available via livestream. If you cannot physically make the event, then this is probably the next best thing.
