In this session, we'll start from scratch and build a nice little software stack that you can use to experiment with big data software. At the end, I've shown the steps to take for setting up a virtual server with a NoSQL database, Hadoop, stream processing engine, and visualization tools. After importing the data, we'll have a modest result in the form of a visualization of some 'little' big data. This session will give you an introduction to the world of big data architecture, without getting too complex or fuzzy. There will be some theory, but the focus is on the practical things you need to do to get started. Bring your laptop if you want some hands-on experience right away! Join this session ff you want to understand what's under the hood of Cloudera, Hortonworks, and MapR, and want to play with modern open source software!
