Behind the glamour of mobile apps, business SaaS products have been steadily building itself into a billion dollar industry. With companies such as Salesforce spearheading the adaption of business SaaS products in corporate, startups are rising to take on the SME market.

With hot topics such as "big data" and "machine learning" flying around, it may seem overwhelming to put an idea into action. The trainer will walk through the process of building an data analytics minimum viable product (MVP). Attendees will have hands on experiences with the free and/or affordable technology and services that can get their MVP up and running.

Target Audience

This tutorial assumes attendees understand the basic of Python. Basic understanding of MapReduce and NoSQL databases will be big pluses as well.

The perspective is stemmed from the trainer's time at bootstrapped startups. Thus, the goal is to get the attendees up and running as soon and as cheaply as possible using readily available technology. Often, this strategy is forgotten in favor of playing with new expensive toys or building in house.
