XSEDE Big Data Workshop

Thursday and Friday, May 18-19, 2017 from 10am-4pm in PGH 200

CACDS has worked with XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) and Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) to host intriguing and informative Big Data Workshops. These workshops have attracted many people from around the Houston community, such as researchers from MD Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, as well as students, postdocs, and faculty from Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering. CACDS will be hosting the 2-day long Big Data workshop hosted by XSEDE and we look forward to seeing everyone in PGH 200 for this event.

This workshop will focus on topics such as Hadoop and Spark and will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom(WAC) training platform.
