Everyone is talking about Big Data. Your clients (or bosses) are starting to ask about it. What do you tell them?
For the past year, Exygy has been helping Bay Area Metro with a project called Vital Signs. This combines big data, open data, and interactive visualizations using charts, graphs, and maps. We'll go over the pros and cons of all the different technologies we've used, and talk about how well they integrate with Drupal. We'll also open up a round table at the end of the session so other people can share their experiences with different technologies.
This session is for site builders, content editors, and project managers, as well as developers. We'll avoid deep technical discussions and try to focus on broader questions of what works, what doesn't, and how you can apply it to your own projects.
This is a copy of the session I gave at Stanford Drupal Camp earlier this year.
