You (a data maggot) have received an owl-mail that has a file.

This file is a compressed sequence of bytes that you have to decode. When you do it, the following image (with crappy quality) can be seen:

Hmm… Haven’t you realized yet? You can become a BIG DATA WIZARD in our Summer Course!!!

So, what is our Summer Course about?

It’s about you, surrounded by your 21 coursemates from around all Europe, living the BEST experience in your life.

Your mornings will be in classroom learning from your Wizard Lecturers; in your afternoons you will discover the city of Madrid, its food and culture; and in the evenings you’ll enjoy the stay with your colleagues with fantastic games to fight the heat of the Spanish summer that we, the organizers have created for YOU! 😀

So, the aim of the course is to introduce you in the amazing and complex world of Big Data with theorical and practical lessons.

But that is not all, because all these activities will be done in the capital city of the country which invented sangria, tapas, long siestas and many other things that you will be able to experience yourself when you come to Madrid.
