BigData London events (and a ticket giveaway)October 3, 2011 by Radek Maciaszek

There have never been as many data events advertised in London as we’d like, but the situation is slowly improving. This summer was particularly good for conferences and there are some interesting things scheduled in the next few months.

A couple of events worth mentioning are:

NoSQL Exchange should offer an interesting overview on various NoSQL technologies, including MongoDB, Cassandra, CouchDB and Riak. Tom Wilkie (from Acunu) will give a tour on the future of NOSQL. Data Mine Lab is a sponsor of NoSQL Exchange and we are giving away one free ticket (worth £195). Simply like us on Facebook before 21nd of October for a chance to win that ticket. Every new follower within that timeframe will be entered into a drawing.

There are also some recurring events on the topics of information, big data and visualisation:

If you’re as busy as us, you probably find it difficult to keep up with international events such as OSCON and Strata conferences. Fortunately, thanks to O’Reilly you can enjoy the talks even if you missed the conference in the first place. There’s plenty of interesting material on the website and it’s definitely worth a look:

This list isn’t intended to be exhaustive and undoubtedly there are data events happening that we’re unaware of. If you know of anything interesting coming up in London, let us know in the comments.
