I gave the half hour version of my Big Data talk on Monday morning and it was received quite favorably. And then Thursday morning I gave a half-day tutorial on the data set I curate, and also got positive feedback, although my audience was only about 9 people. The rest of the time I spent learning about a lot of cool systems, the details of which have already fled my brain, but fortunately I wrote it all down. Friday afternoon I got to play around with some Jupyter notebooks, which are super-nifty. And then I hung out with Mattie S. (who was helping out with the Jupyter tutorial) and his co-workers at the Boulder Brewery for a while, which was nice.
Overall, it was very good, although with the getting in to work much earlier than normal plus last minute prep plus multi-tasking proposal stuff on top of the conference I was REALLY FREAKING TIRED by the end of it. But now that I'm done with all of it I finally get my brain back, hooray!
...Just as soon as I finish the proposal editing stuff I'm working on tonight. *sigh*
