About Strata + Hadoop World
Strata + Hadoop World is where cutting-edge science and new business fundamentals intersect—and merge. It’s a deep-immersion event where data scientists, analysts, and executives get up to speed on emerging techniques and technologies by dissecting case studies, developing new skills through in-depth tutorials, sharing emerging best practices in data science, and imagining the future.
Our speakers have a laser-sharp focus on the data issues that are shaping the business, finance, media, fashion, retail, energy, manufacturing, and government worlds.
The data industry is growing fast, and Strata + Hadoop World has grown right along with it. We’ve added new sessions and tracks to reflect challenges that have emerged in the data field—including security, ubiquitous computing, collaboration, peer analytics, reproducibility, new interfaces, emerging architecture, building data teams, machine data—and much more.
Strata + Hadoop World is now the largest conference of its kind in the world, yet it’s kept the informal, collegial spirit that makes it one of the best places to connect and collaborate.
