Learning Journey: Strata + Hadoop San Jose, March 2017

After the success of last year’s visit to San Jose, The Data Lab in collaboration with Scottish Development International (SDI) are delighted to support a limited number of places to attend the Strata + Hadoop World: Make Data Work Conference in San Jose, California taking place from 13 to 16 March 2017. Passes for the conference will be supplied by The Data Lab.

Strata + Hadoop World is a 4-day immersion in the most challenging problems, intriguing use cases, and enticing opportunities in data today. Over a hundred of the most interesting people in data will take the stage to share their expertise and ideas, including The Data Lab’s CEO Gillian Docherty.

The Data Lab is offering 8 fully-paid passes for the event, and SDI is complementing the offer with travel & accommodation support in the form of a flat-rate grant up to a maximum of £600 “ based on support levels for USA and a maximum of 5 nights in-market. In addition, we will organise a full visit program to include possible meetings and networking events with relevant organisations.

Companies should note that places are limited and these will be allocated based on the relevance for both the applying organisation, and their representative. This Learning Journey is targeted at senior leaders at CTO level or equivalent. Applications will be assessed with regard to their fit with the objectives of the Learning Journey and their ability to derive benefits / insights for Scotland from their participation. Participating companies will also need to commit to a post-event survey regarding outcomes delivered.

To apply, please complete the enclosed application form and e-mail it to, with the subject “San Jose Application” by 5pm on Friday 20 January 2017.
