Comments about oreilly Strata Conference Santa Clara 2014: Complete Video Compilation:
Strata provides such a wide breadth of talks that you can get a feel for almost every big data product in the ecosystem. Topics that are covered include tutorials on rapid prototyping and model iteration in IPython with scikit-learn to creating production data systems for batch, interactive, and realtime analytical workloads.
This years Strata was the most appealing one yet as it was the most focused on Python and the next generation of Hadoop such as Spark, Shark, and MLlib. If you aren't familiar with the Python data stack I highly recommend watching Olivier Grisel and Fernando Perez's talks. The great part of these videos is that, unlike the conference, you won't find yourself stuck in a talk that lost your interest half-way through and lamenting missing another talk.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
