UK Hadoop Event: Bring your lunch, we’ll get the ice-cream!

After the break in the glorious hot weather we want to banish the rain and thunderstorms and bring back a lazy sunny London, so a few of us decided that it was time to hold the first “Big Data Lunch in the Park” summertime meet-up.

Register here at 

Grab your lunch, divert your phone to your mobile and join us on the 8th August at noon at Green Park and hang out with some of your fellow Big Data enthusiasts.  Who needs a better reason to bring your lunch to the park? It’s a Big Data informal meet-up summer style. Meet us under the summer sun, grab yourself a deck chair if you fancy, make some friends, catch up with some old and be part of the growing big data community in London while having lots of fun.

A few of us in the Big Data community have come together to add some excitement to the day.  If you register with us (just your name and email required) and bring your confirmation of registration with you, you are eligible for lots of great gifts from some key Big Data organizations but its not required.

Look for someone in the associated company t-shirt and the first people who find us at the park can get:

  • Actuate: water bottles to take away with you and a game of footie!
  • Hortonworks: an ice-cream of your choice from the Ritz Corner Cafe at the park
  • Tableau:  a cold or hot drink from the Ritz Corner Cafe at the park to go with your lunch
  • Talend: one of 3 bottles of Pimms and a matching jug
  • Teradata: one of 10 picnic blankets and possibly a frisbee or two
  • Splunk: a can cooler to keep those drinks fresh

Get there soon before the gifts run out.  Your registration will also allow us to confirm the exact location as well as notify you, if we do have any unfortunate weather changes (it is England after all!) and have to reschedule the event for the next sunny day.

Register here at 

We look forward to seeing you there!  Bring your friends, everyone is welcome.
