O'Reilly Media is offering Reg readers a twenty-five per cent discount on tickets to Strata, its brand new conference dedicated to Big Data – that's digerati-speak for "using the latest web and enterprise data processing tools to reinvent your business". Set for February 1 through February 3 in Santa Clara, California, the confab will include Big Data–minded bigwigs from the likes of Google, Microsoft, and Amazon.

Strata is meant to educate the world in the ways of modern data crunching. "Bringing together decision-makers, practitioners, and leading vendors from enterprise and the web, Strata will provide three days of training, breakout sessions, and plenary discussions, along with a Sponsor Pavilion showcasing the new data ecosystem," O'Reilly says.

Keynote speakers include Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, Microsoft Azure general manager Adam Zane, and Google data scientist Toby Segaran, as well as Mike Olsen, the former Oracle exec who now heads commercial Hadoop outfit Cloudera.

Reg readers can purchase discounted tickets here. The discount code is: "str11tcr". ®
