The Orlando SQL user group (OPASS) meets the last Thursday of every month at Cork and Olive in Lake Mary, FL. We feature a different speaker every month covering a variety of topics. This is a free event centered around Microsoft SQL server, where everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Come join us for free learning, networking, food, and fun.

Featured Presentation:

Predicting Home Value

David Crook, Technical Evangelist Microsoft

After deciding to move to South Florida, David did what most folks would. Went on Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com to try to find a home, and then of course signed up with several realtor’s MLS listings “specific to him”. Well that wound up in a bunch of garbage, so like any good data munger, David decided to take matters into his own hands. This HOL walks through one of the predictive analytics algorithms required to find the right home in South Florida. David has already data mined a portion of Zillow’s data and dropped it into SQL Azure. We will be using that data in this lab to predict the ‘actual’ value of various home configurations.

About David:
David is a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft focused on Analytics and Innovation. He has past experience at Microsoft Consulting Services as a development engineer working on projects for some of Microsoft's largest customers across multiple verticals.
