Lightning Talks aka Big Data Shark Tank

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This year lightning talks have been overrun by sharks. Which means, at this point, you may be wondering: is it a panel? Is it a talk? It is a Big Data Shark Tank! Back by popular demand with even sharkier judges! What is it, you ask? Well, this is just like Shark Tank TV show (think speed dating between entrepreneurs and investors) but instead of “Squirrel Boss” and “Man Candle” you'll be hearing pitches for Apache Incubator  Big Data projects. Also instead of Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary you'll be pitching to the panel of ASF grey beards and money men (trying to convince them that your project  is worthy of their esteemed attention and endorsement). The will be snark, there may be prizes, there will be reciting of Apache Way creed. But most of all there will be fun. We guaranteed that!
