Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

Jim Adler thinks big about the implications of big data-powered inference for ethics and for crime in these talks from Strata:

For the first time in human existence, we can "think" outside of our brains. What does this mean for privacy, morality, ethics, and the law? This is not just theoretical. Retailers know you're pregnant before your family; your sexual orientation can be automatically derived from your friends list; and police can predict where and when crime is more likely to occur. So, if we can make these inferences, should we?

Hortonworks Community Connection (HCC) is an online collaboration destination for developers, DevOps, customers and partners to get answers to questions, collaborate on technical articles and share code examples from GitHub.  Join the discussion.
