H2O fans, we wish that all of you were here, but we also know that our community is spread across the globe and not all of you could make it to H2O World. However, those of you not able to attend the conference are just as much a part of our community as those that are. While we can’t hope to convey the energy and excitement of H2O World, we can share some highlights.
In one of the day’s big surprises, AT&T data scientist Lauren Savage, who has been using H2O for just two weeks, won yesterday’s three-hour hackathon as judged by our panel of Kaggle pros. Congratulations Lauren!

The rest of the day was full of tons of great demonstrations and walkthroughs designed to help our community get the most out of their data.

New community members got an introduction to the H2O platform followed by an explanation of how to install H2O and introductions to data science, R, Python and the Flow UI. Veteran H2O users received an update on the software and an explanation of how to upgrade it. Both groups were treated to a special conversation over lunch with our Chief Architect, Arno Candel.

Silicon Valley Data Science’s Chen Huang got the the afternoon off to a great start with a talk on how to ask smarter questions to make better business decisions. Erdos, one of our two main stages, hosted a series of awesome afternoon talks on Deep Learning, GLM, Ensembles, Sparkling Water and building smart applications, plus a panel on competitive data science! Not to be outdone, the Ramanujan stage featured talks on using H2O with Databricks Cloud, GBM and Random Forest, GLRM, migrating proprietary stacks to open source H2O, Deep Learning and a panel discussion on Smart Applications!
