Big data is a big deal right now, and it’s only going to become a bigger deal in the future, so it makes sense to learn about as many of its aspects as you can, as quickly as you can. Or pick one and learn it very well. Or don’t pick any, if you are a staunch believer in the shelf-life of traditional data warehouses. From a machine learning deep-dive to an open-source buffet, the following five conferences provide educational and networking opportunities for both the specialists and renaissance persons among you.
