Description

Dealing with big data isn't a particularly new problem. There are all sorts of new solutions, each with their own niche, their own hype. It's important to remember that python is not "too slow" for big data, and that with projects such as scipy, numpy, cython and rpy, python is becoming a better tool then ever for data processing. In this talk we'll be explaining some of the theory behind big data problems, where python fits in and some of the more interesting things you can do.
