This year, Strata conference is going down from 19-21 November 2014 in Barcelona. Next to being a gorgeous city, the conference is another reason to visit for anyone with an interest for data! To give you an idea of what Strata is, I pulled a summary from the StrataConf website.
Moreover we got a discount code! Pull the link and code from the sponsors list on our meetup page!
About the O’Reilly Strata Conference
The best minds in data will gather in Barcelona this November for the O’Reilly Strata Conference to learn, connect, and explore the complex issues and exciting opportunities brought to business by big data, data science, and pervasive computing.
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
Strata Conference is where big data’s most influential business decision makers, strategists, architects, developers, and analysts gather to shape the future of their businesses and technologies. If you want to tap into the opportunity that big data presents, you want to be at Strata.
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.
At Strata, you’ll:
- Be among the first to understand how you can leverage the promise of this huge 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
Strata Conference delivers the nuts-and-bolts foundation for building a data-driven business—the latest on the skills, tools, and technologies you need to make data work—alongside the forward-looking insights and ahead-of-the-curve thinking O’Reilly is known for.
There was a palpable sense of excitement in the air. Obviously most of the attendees were already ‘data’ aficionados, but it’s clear that ‘data’ in various forms is on the radar for governments, large corporations, and the developer communities.
At Strata, you’ll find:
- 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 opportunities to meet other business leaders, data professionals, designers, and developers
O’Reilly is followed by venture capitalists, business analysts, news pundits, tech journalists, and thought leaders because we have a knack for knowing what’s important now and what will be important next—and the ability to articulate the seminal narratives about emerging and game-changing technologies.
We don’t say this to brag. We say it to make a point: we’re not easily hypnotized by hype. We’ve seen the bubbles build and burst. For over three decades, we’ve been tapping into a deep network of alpha geeks and thought leaders to recognize the truly disruptive technologies amidst the fluff. So when we invest in a conference, we’re not just following the hype, we’re committed to creating a community around an issue we believe is transformative.
At O’Reilly, we think big data is not just important. We think it’s a game changer. That’s why we created Strata.
O’Reilly’s conferences forge new ties between industry leaders, raise awareness of technology issues we think are interesting and important, and crystallize the critical issues around emerging technologies. Understanding these emerging technologies—and how they will transform the way we do business—has never been more crucial. If you want to understand the challenges and opportunities wrought by big data, you’ll want to attend Strata.
