Big Data TechCon is for technical practitioners – the data scientists, developers and analysts who actually make Big Data work at their companies or for their clients. Job titles may vary, but the attendees of Big Data TechCon will be relying on you to help get them up to speed – or increase their expertise – that will empower them to give their companies a competitive advantage.
What do these professionals all have in common? They'll be attending Big Data TechCon in Chicago from November 2-4, 2015, to learn HOW TO master Big Data.
Big Data TechCon kicks off on Monday morning with deep-dive full-day tutorials (7 hours in length) and half-day tutorials (3 1/2 hours in length). Tuesday and Wednesday will feature dozens of 75 and 150-minute technical classes.
When you propose a tutorial or a class, be clear about the objective. Details matter. Expect to teach to your session description. For example, if you say that your session is advanced, it must be advanced. If you say your session is hands-on, it must be hands-on. If you say that your session covers three specific frameworks, you must cover all three frameworks. We also only accept sessions that are 100% tool and vendor agnostic. Do not send a sales or marketing pitch.
