Strata + Hadoop World 2014 Videos

John Rauser from Pinterest gives one of the more popular talks from the Recent Strata Conference + Hadoop World. The following quote from his talk might peak your interest enough to get you to watch the entire video. Remember, he is speaking to a room with some of the leading data scientists in the world.

Many of the people in this audience are faking it….when it comes to statistics

Many other keynotes, talks, and interviews during the Strata + Hadoop World videos are available on the Youtube playlist.

The Art of Good Practice – Strata Video

This is definitely not the typical Strata talk. Rodney Mullen, The Godfather of Street Skating, gives a very thought-provoking talk. I do not really follow skateboarding, but Rodney is widely considered one of the best skateboarders on the planet.

I would say the talk applies to data science, but I would also say it applies to life. Here are the high points I took from the talk.

  • Share with others
  • Take risks to improve
  • Be smart enough to know when you are headed in the wrong direction

You should definitely watch the video, because you will likely get something different from the presentation.

By the way, Happy Pi Day!
