Big Data and BIRT in San Francisco and New York

Actuate is sponsoring a customer day in San Francisco on November 8 and in New York on November 14.  This one day event is free to all and will focus on Big Data and Data Visualization.  Shaku Atre will be doing a keynote on Big Data entitled “Big Data in Motion and Humongous Data at Rest”.   Stephen Few will be doing a keynote on Data Visualization entitled “Telling Compelling Stories with Numbers” in San Francisco and Geoff McGhee will be presenting “Telling Stories with Data” in New York.  There will also be breakout sessions focused on Dashboards and Scorecards, Tips and Tricks, and Big Data Visualizations.   I will be doing a talk in the Tip and Tricks breakout entitled “BIRT Essentials: Tips and Tricks Every Developer Should Know”.  In this talk I will cover some of the most effective but least understood features of BIRT including how to improve performance, scripting, accessing Big Data sources, debugging reports, and making your reports more dynamic.
