Usually known for its sun, sand and sea, Marbella will also be making a name for itself in the technological world in 2019. One of Southern Europe’s largest Big Data events comes to Marbella in mid-May with J on the Beach. The 3-day event will bring together some of the world’s greatest Big Data experts from companies like Nasa, Microsoft and Google.
Why J on the Beach in Marbella
This year sees the fourth edition of J on the Beach, an event for software engineers and developers. The previous editions had been held in Malaga city, but the organisers needed a larger venue to cope with increased demand.
The Congress Palace in Marbella allows the extra capacity – this year’s event increases its attendees from 400 to 1,000. And fulfills the other important criteria for the Big Data event: it’s on the beach!
The program for J on the Beach
This year’s edition combines practical experience with knowledge sharing from the experts. Participants on the first day of J on the Beach will take part in a giant hackathon with the objective of creating a distributed data science solution in just one day.
The following two days are dedicated to the experts and J on the Beach has a long list of top keynote speakers who are at the top of their game in Big Data. Representatives from companies such as Google, Microsoft and Nasa will be speaking to attendees. Topics included range from data visualization to functional programming and DevOps.
But the Big Data event in Marbella isn’t just about keynote speakers. Attendees also have the opportunity to network, exchange ideas with fellow developers and enjoy the Marbella sunshine and the beach.
