[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=videoseries?list=PLgqwinaq-u-OjuL89qqV4lto2PG3QwjbM&w=600&h=360] Data Science MD, in an effort to provide additional value to its members, has started a YouTube channel, DataScienceMD, to host videos of talks presented at Meetup events. Now, when a member can't attend an event due to a scheduling conflict or being out of town, they can view the videos after the fact to stay in the loop. However, we know the more likely scenario: seeing the talks in person will not be enough and you will want to see it again and again. (It's OK, we won't tell the presenters how often you are watching them.)
The presentations are available in two formats: individual video entries that cover one specific presentation and playlists which group all presentations from an event together in one package making it easy to relive it in its entirety. The default view when first visiting the channel is to see the most recent activity. By clicking on the Videos link just below the channel title, you will see individual presentations. To see the playlists, simply change the Uploads box to Playlists.
The playlist above is from our May Meetup which featured Cloudera consultants Joey Echeverria and Sean Busbey discussing an infrastructure option that can make analyzing Twitter data quick and simple as well an introduction to one of the many features of Apache Mahout. These were not just static presentations; they also included live demonstrations/queries against data stored within the infrastructure, and it was all captured in the videos. Check them out!
