Create Event

Big Data Week aims to bring together more than 40,000 participants across four continents.

Roll up your sleeves Leeds! Join the community and register an event for #bdw16.

From a meet-up to a hackathon, a demo to a workshop…we would like to have both business views and technical views on problems solved, issues encountered – all topics have to be extremely practical.

The aim of the 4th Big Data Week is to inspire more individuals and SMEs to start a data project and tap into the immense growth potential of big data. So  Big Data Week 2016 will pursue two categories:

The business part is aimed at business decision makers, consultants and analysts, and it’s meant to showcase real world success stories.

The technology part is for solution architects, engineers, data scientists and devops and will include best practices, how-tos, workshops and case studies from big data professionals that have hands-on experience in working with technologies such as Hadoop, NoSQL, visualization and integration software.
