WednesdayNov 12 2014AppNexus Tech Talk: Taming Big Data

Please join our next Tech Talk on November 12th as AppNexus' Senior Data team, Ersin Yilmaz, Swapnil Pandit, and Ankit Malhotra, give an insider's look of our Data stack and specifically how the team leverages Hadoop, HBase and other technologies and strategies to tame this data.
Doors open at 6:00pm -- Please join us for food and drinks prior to the presentation at 6:30pm.
