Big Data Camp LA was a way help introduce the Big Data topic in Southern California,” commented Subash D’Souza, Organizer of the event. “Being in Southern California, we don’t always get the opportunity to have quality conferences, especially ones that talk about data, forget big data. I also felt that most conferences are always very expensive and this is a chance to do something for the community at large and give back. I honestly believe that quality conferences can also be done even when it is free. This conference is a chance to get the topic of Big Data in everyone’s mind and it is also an opportunity to share ideas and thoughts within the community.”
I am a co-organizer of the Big Data Camp so I’ll see you all there!
