FAQ

What are the prerequisites to attend an AMP Camp?

We expect folks who are relatively new to big data analytics and distributed systems will be able to follow along throughout the entire AMP Camp agenda, so the prerequisites are relatively light. Familiarity with Linux, Java, SQL, and EC2 might be helpful, but isn’t strictly required.

How many AMPLab Sponsor representatives can register for free?

Due to space limitations, we have reserved some space at AMP Camp for AMPLab Sponsor and Affiliate representatives through the August 9th, after which time the seats will become available to anybody via the General Registration option. During the Affiliates and Sponsors registration window (ending on Aug 9th), Seats are available according to the following breakdown:

  • Founding Sponsors: 6 attendees for free.
  • Sponsors: 4 attendees for free.
  • Affiliates: 2 attendees for free

Invitations are transferrable. If more folks in your organization are interested in attending than are allocated according to your sponsor type, any number can register via the general registration option. You can also let us know by emailing ampcamp@cs.berkeley.edu and we will see what we can do as things progress, pending space availability (however we usually sell out so there is low probability that space will become available).

When I try to register with my sponsor/affiliate/associate access code, I see the error: ‘No more “XXXX” codes are being accepted for this registrant type. Enter another code or contact your event administrator.’

This means that all of the free slots allocated to your organization have been used by people that have registered from your organization already. If more folks in your organization are interested in attending than are allocated according to your sponsor type, let us know by emailing ampcamp@cs.berkeley.edu

The videos are available here!
