Scalable Real-time Analytics with Storm

This tutorial will describe how to process real-time streams and using the open-source Storm framework. We will define Storm's core concepts whilst focusing on creating a simple topology that counts, in real-time, key-words and hashtags seen in Twitter's public (1%) feed.

Big Data Analyses with R

Bring your laptop, use your web browser to access a RStudio based analyses platform in the cloud and leave with a lot of new ideas for efficient Big Data analyses with R.

Communicating Data Clearly
Naomi Robbins (NBR)
Communicating Data Clearly describes how to draw clear, concise, accurate graphs that are easier to understand than many of the graphs one sees today. The tutorial emphasizes how to avoid common mistakes that produce confusing or even misleading graphs. Graphs for one, two, three, and many variables are covered as well as general principles for creating effective graphs.
