General description

Every minute we send 204 million emails, generate 1.8 million Facebook likes and send 278000 tweets, and upload 20000 photos to Facebook.

Google on average processes over 40 thousand searches per second, making it over 3.5 billion in a single day.

The NSA is thought to analyze 1.6% of all global internet traffic -around thirty petabytes (30 million gigabytes) every day.

The number of bits of information stored in the digital universe is thought to have exceeded the number of stars in the physical universe 2007.

Have you ever wondered how Google deals with all that data?

Has it happened to you that you searched for the prize of socks and since that you only see sock’s commercials everywhere spamming, making your internet browser slowing down?

Do you want to learn how Facebook, YouTube, Google and other social networks can stalk on you and get to know you better even than you yourself?

We have a surprise: Veszprem knows the answers!

Hungary is famous for its goulash, palinka, paprika, Nobel prizes, Rubik’s cube or the two Hummers in the Lake Balaton (check the photos, it was hilarious :P).

So if you are ready to take this challenge, apply for our course :) Experience the BEST Spirit and get to know about BIG DATA with the most handsome guys and cutest girls in Hungary :) Spend 7 days and 6 nights with us: have a siesta by the Hungarian sea (lake Balaton), have fun and and get to know the Hungarian traditions.

Don’t be shy, just APPLY, you will LOVE us :)
