Well folks, it’s happening. I’m about to take one of my most adventurist steps into these training classes yet.
With the release of Manifold 9, I’m going to offer a big data analytics class that includes gigabytes of data, multi-databases, statistical processing, and parallel processing. And, it is something you will be able to participate in using only freely available software. Imagine that, a big data analytics class with free software
Delivering 20GB of data at a bring your own device (BYOD) training class is a challenge. Also, with this high level work, it is a further challenge to decide what can fit into a one day workshop.
Thankfully, the California State University at Long Beach provided me with an opportunity to teach my workshop to their students this week. It was a blast!
More importantly I learned a lot about how to put together a deep-dive of a class like this together. 8 hours is simply too short!!
The students loved the workshop, and I loved teaching it. Stay tuned, as a live workshop will be up coming to a city near you, and an abbreviated online workshop will roll out in the next month.
