I will be attending the 2013 OSCON Open Source Convention July 22-26 at the Oregon Convention Center.
Here are a few of the Workshops and Classes I plan to attend:
This hands-on workshop will provide the attendee an introduction to R, an open-source statistical computing environment that some say is even more powerful and flexible than SAS and SPSS. Additionally, the session will also provide and introduction to predictive analytics theory and R’s ability to apply predictive analytics theory to real-world situations.
This tutorial will present a mix of lecture and instructor-led demonstrations to explain what Apache Hadoop is and why it’s becoming a standard for large-scale data storage and processing.
The “Solr Quick Start” tutorial covers the following topics:
- Introducing Solr and Lucene
- Installing and running Solr
- Indexing your data
- Configuring the schema
- Surveying Solr’s features
- Tuning and scaling
- Integrating into your applications
This tutorial covers the core functionality of the Neo4j graph database. With a mixture of theory and hands-on practice sessions, attendees will quickly learn how easy it is to develop a Neo4j-backed application.
Another FREE Microsoft Press book.
This one will help you start thinking about SQL Server 2012, and may be useful as you start to plan both new installations and upgrades. This book does expect that you have working understanding of SQL Server, but does a good job describing the new features of SQL Server 2012.
This free ebook is available in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats over at the MSDN Blog
