Patrim Das, Amazon Web Services

Pratim Das is a Specialist Solutions Architect for Big Data and Analytics at Amazon Web Services. He works with customers on big data and analytical projects, helping them build solutions on AWS, using AWS services and (or) other open source or commercial solution from the big data echo system. In his spare time he enjoys cooking and creating exciting new recipes always with that spicy kick.


Prerequisites

  • This is an adavanced level course so understanding of databases and data warehouses is essential.

  • Understanding of AWS is optional. AWS certification (any associate level will do) OR understanding of big data technologies such as Hadoop, Spark etc. is a plus.

  • You will need to bring your own laptop with a web browser and SSH client.


Important notes

This workshop is by no means related to the AWS Big Data and Data Warehousing courses or negates the need to complete AWS Big Data and Data Warehousing courses. Both AWS Big Data and Data Warehousing courses are essential for your success in building big data solutions on AWS.

As this is a value-added bespoke training for The Data Lab Innovation Centre it is absolutely essential that you RSVP, as space is extremely limited. If you are no longer able to attend, please contact info@thedatalab.com and cancel your ticket so that we can re-allocate spaces efficiently to those on our waiting list.


Please register now to avoid disappointment!

We hope you can make it.
