Welcome to DataTechBlog. My name is Louis and I am a data professional. I espouse all data: big, small, structured, semi-structured, unstructured, dark, sensor, I do not discriminate. For the past 20 years I have gained expertise in many aspects of data including, analytics, management, operations, architecture, technology, administration, and engineering.
Over the past several years the terms “data science” and “big data” have become commonplace. My goal is to help other data and database professionals learn about the emerging disciplines of data science and big data analytics. Here you will find tutorials, how to’s and topic discussions on various dimensions of these disciplines including data mining, exploratory data analysis, data prep/scrubbing, data engineering, tools (e.g. Greenplum, R, MADlib, Hadoop, Hive, Pig, etc.), visualizations, and much more.
Coming from a traditional data architecture background, I can help bridge the gap for people who work with RDBMS technologies who are interested in learning more about data science and big data analytics.
