Intense. In-Depth. Hands On.


The preliminary day of The Fifth Elephant 2013 - 11th July - provides the best opportunity to dive into various languages and tools used for data analysis and visualization, and understand how they compare with each other.

Learn about open source frameworks and tools such as Pig, Hive, Hadoop; commercial solutions (sponsored), programming languages such as R, databases and visualization techniques and tricks through slides, demonstrations and partially hands-on activities. There will be ample opportunity to clarify doubts regarding the limitations and possibilities of these tools and frameworks.
