More on the conference from their website:

Strata + Hadoop World is where big data’s most influential decision makers, architects, developers, and analysts gather to shape the future of their businesses and technologies. Since joining forces last year, Strata + Hadoop World is also one of the largest gatherings of the Apache Hadoop community in the world, with emphasis on hands-on and business sessions on the Hadoop ecosystem. If you want to tap into the opportunities brought by big data, data science, and pervasive computing, you’ll want to be there.

The future belongs to those who understand how to collect and use their data successfully. And that future happens at Strata.

Why You Should Attend

  • Be among the first to understand how to take advantage of this change, and survive the resulting disruption
  • Find new ways to leverage your data assets across industries and disciplines
  • Learn how to take big data from science project to real business application
  • Discover training, hiring, and career opportunities for data professionals
  • Meet-face-to face with other innovators and thought leaders

The Strata Experience

  • Three days of inspiring keynotes and intensely practical, information-rich sessions exploring the latest advances, case studies, and best practices
  • A Sponsor Pavilion with key players and latest technologies
  • A vibrant “hallway track” for attendees, speakers, journalists, and vendors to debate and discuss important issues
  • Plenty of events and networking opportunities to meet other business leaders, data professionals, designers, and developers

Kudos from Previous Strata + Hadoop World Attendees

“In a crowded market place of “Big Data” conferences, Strata has firmly established itself as the place where you go to meet people who think and do data science.”

“One of the most valuable events to advance my career.”

“Everyone in big data is there”

“A must for anyone who wants a peek into the future of Big Data.”

“At first I was dizzied by the scope of the discussion. The technology gets very deep. The analytical techniques go quite far. You can be anyone—from a person like me who is just learning, to someone who has a PhD in machine learning. The difference in expertise is great, and people are coming from all kinds of different spaces with different research agendas. I found that both dizzying and fascinating. Strata helped me to develop a vocabulary for what I was getting into, and helped me to see where the horizons were and how to map out the space in front of me.”
