Did you miss all the fantastic Big Data and Hadoop conferences in the first quarter of 2013? Perhaps you had wanted to go, but were unable to travel to the conferences or did not have sufficient budget to attend. Fortunately, you can still watch some of the conference videos and presentations online. Although a complete set of conference proceedings usually requires a purchase, many of the conferences publish some or all of the conference keynote videos and presentations online for free. Check out this list of 2013 Q1 Big Data and Hadoop conferences below, along with links to watch their recorded conference videos. Although you can’t get the full conference experience online (with the valuable networking opportunities), you can still at least learn from the keynotes and selected speakers.
