I will be speaking at NDC Sydney, which runs from August 14th through the 18th in Sydney, Australia.
I will have two talks at the event, both on Wednesday, August 16th. First up, I am giving a talk entitled Data Cleansing with SQL and R, where I use a combination of T-SQL and R to build tidy data sets.
Then, right after that, I will give a talk entitled Peanut Butter and Chocolate: Integrating Hadoop with SQL Server. This talk is all about ways of tying together SQL Server and Hadoop.
Unfortunately, the Early Bird Price has expired, so tickets are at their regular price. But tickets are still available, so if you want to see a bunch of top-notch speakers and get your passport stamped, check it out.
