I work at Cloudera, a leading big data company. Every day, I see how big data transforms multiple industries and fields of science, creating enormous social and economic value. UC Berkeley is a major training center for future big data professionals, with dedicated classes, degrees, and research labs. I am here to share the excitement of contributing to a technology trend that will touch every aspect of how we live, work, and learn. I will cover (1) how Cloudera's technology enables our customers to deliver immediate improvements to people's daily lives, and (2) my day-to-day experiences of working with the fantastic team at Cloudera.
