Big Data, Cloud, and other Marketing Buzzwords De-mystified

When your boss sends you to a conference, she expects you to learn something useful. Like all of the buzzwords she has to explain to her boss. Make it worth her while (and budget) and bring back the info she craves. Buck Woody, who is surprised that he still is employed by Microsoft, explains them all in one presentation. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be moved by the tales of cloud derring-do (look it up), “Hadoop”, and all kinds of other children-stuffed-toy-named-technologies. You’ll find that learning can be fun, if not dangerous, and along the way you’ll pick up useful information you can use to not only impress your boss, friends and family – but also things you can use to get actual work done.
