The Future Belongs to Those Who Understand Data

Join us at the O'Reilly Strata Conference in Santa Clara to get a clear perspective on the future of big data—as well as all the analytics, architectures, techniques, tools, and technologies you need to use data successfully right now.

7 Things You'll Learn at Strata

The depth and breadth of what's covered at Strata requires 7 different tracks just to organize it all. You can follow one track from beginning to end, or just select the individual sessions that most interest you.

  • Data Science: Learn the latest techniques in machine learning, prediction, and technology, as well as building effective data teams and creating a data-driven organizational culture.
  • Data in Action: See real-world case studies of large-scale, innovative big data applications that highlight behind-the-scenes insights from some of the industry's top practitioners—packed with practical lessons, integration tricks, and a glimpse of what's next.
  • The Connected World: Explore the promises and perils of an always-on and increasingly quantified society, from the reach of government to the rights of the digital persona.
  • Design: Tackle user experience, new interfaces, interactivity, and visualization—what it means to convey knowledge, from designing compelling interfaces to guiding users through a complex, immersive user experience.
  • Ethics, Privacy, and Policy: Discuss some of the biggest issues in compliance, governance, and ethics that an always-on, over-shared society faces.
  • Hadoop and Beyond: Dive into tools that make the big data revolution possible—Hadoop, Cassandra, Storm, Spark/Shark, and Drill—and extend your data science toolkit.
  • Machine Data: Discover how to harness the flood of information from the Internet of Things—the torrent of data from devices, factories, and data centers, and the tools for collecting, storing, and analyzing it all.
