Excerpt

Big data may be a buzzword, but that buzzword is driving major open source development. This panel will discuss the trends pushing open source projects related to big data.

Description

Big data may be a buzzword, but that buzzword is driving major open source development. It’s not just big organizations that are trying to get a handle on their data sets; consumer trends (like Quantified Self) and small business trends (like growth hacking) are bringing new users to the table. Given that open source software is core to how many of these data sets are managed, we will discuss the big questions in how big data projects are making use of open source technology and what trends are going to force changes to both big data and open source.

This panel will focus on those trends, both in how the panelists see big data playing out in their own careers and in the open source projects they participate in.
