If It’s Tuesday, There Must Be a "Data Ride"

Categories: Community General Hadoop

Mark your calendars, all you data cyclists!

I’m visiting Paris, London, and Edinburgh this June. When I travel I like to talk to locals. And, wherever I am, I like to bicycle. So, I thought I might combine these interests and host “data rides” in these three cities.

In each city I’ll name a time and a meeting point, and then ride the local roads for an hour or two with whomever shows up. Afterward, we might need some libations at a local pub. I might even get Cloudera to throw in some schwag.

Ride dates are as follows:

All rides will start at 5pm. I’ll pick a meeting point closer to the event and tweet it from @cutting. Also, please tweet me if you have ideas of where we should ride.
