7 Sessions From DataWorks Summit Sydney You Should See

In September, we rounded out the 2017 DataWorks Summit events in Sydney, Australia. Each event boasts different sessions, keynotes, sponsors, etc. so you can be sure to get a new experience and the latest updates from the community wherever you go.

Aside from the networking opportunities, the best part of DataWorks Summit is the session content. In fact, the most common question we are asked at the show is, “When will the slides be available?”. Well, good news. You can find the slides for the sessions on the agenda on the website and SlideShare for all of the DataWorks Summits.

To help get you started, here is a list of the top 7 sessions from Hortonworks at DataWorks Summit Sydney covering topics and updates on the latest from Apache Hadoop, Apache Hive, Apache Zeppelin, Apache Metron, Apache ORC, leveraging TensorFlow with Apache Nifi, and much more. There were a number of other great sessions from other sources as well, so be sure to look around and explore the variety of topics.
