3 Big data security analytics techniques

Poll We were rather concerned at our beloved readers' response to the Training Camps's recent informal survey into the musical preferences of various IT trades according to the contents of their iPods.

Many of you wrote in to protest in the strongest possible terms that the remit of the survey - and indeed the number of participants - were simply too limited to accurately reflect the true state of play(lists).

Accordingly, we have cobbled together the Mother of all Music Polls. Here's how it works: you must select the job title which most closely reflects your position. You must then select just ONE artist from the genres on offer. Not one from each genre, just one overall fave. You then hit submit. We collate the data and report back next week on whether or not it is true that all developers play air guitar to Megadeth.

But before you rush excitedly to the poll, let's get a few things straight. Certain genres and many artists are not represented in our poll. This is due entirely to our personal prejudice/ignorance/indifference. For example, we can't be bothered with 1940s swing bands and what we know about Mongolian throat singing can be written on the back of a very small yak.

So, what we don't want to see are whining emails containing lines such as "I can't BELIEVE that you left out Romanian gypsy ballads" or "since you call Britney Spears a pop artist it's clear that you know nothing about music, you jackass".

You get the idea. If you can't find your particluar favourite artist, then pick another. After all, it's not a matter of life or death. Well, not quite:

Easy Listening
