We are happy to be able to offer our members a pre-conference session on Big Data.  This course is being offered by Cloudera.

The Big Data: Hadoop Essentials one-day course presents an overview of Apache Hadoop and how it can help decision-makers meet business goals. This course provides a fundamental introduction to the main components of Hadoop and the broader Hadoop ecosystem.  Cloudera is the leader in next generation data management. In addition, Cloudera is the leading innovator in and largest contributor to the open source Apache Hadoop® ecosystem.

Apache Hadoop is 100% open source, and pioneered a fundamentally new way of storing and processing data. Instead of relying on expensive, proprietary hardware and different systems to store and process data, Hadoop enables distributed parallel processing of huge amounts of data across inexpensive, industry-standard servers that both store and process the data, and can scale without limits. With Hadoop, no data is too big. And in today’s hyper-connected world where more and more data is being created every day, Hadoop’s breakthrough advantages mean that businesses and organizations can now find value in data that was recently considered useless.

This full-day course is offered free of charge to ACET members and attendees to the 2015 conference.  It will be held on Thursday, October 29th, 9:00 - 4:00.  Just mark you registration "yes" to attending the pre-conference.
