The School for Information and Knowledge Systems SIKS and the Dutch e-science grid BiG Grid organized a new two-day tutorial on Big Data at the University of Twente on 30 November and 1 December 2011, just preceding the Dutch-Belgian Database Day. The tutorial is on top of some exciting new developments in large-scale data processing and data centers, initiated by Google, and followed by many others such as Yahoo, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook. The course teaches how to process terabytes of data on large clusters, and discusses several core computer science topics adapted for big data, such as new file systems (Google File System and Hadoop FS), new programming paradigms (MapReduce), new programming languages and query languages (Sawzall, Pig Latin), and new 'noSQL' databases (BigTable, Cassandra and Dynamo).
