Starting a data-intensive project is a lot like starting an oil/petroleum company (but without the environmental downside).

You may be sitting on top of an ocean of data, and you need a way to get it out of the ground, move it to all the right places, refine it, and then present it for the users to consume.

If there were a place on the internet where you could learn the tools and tactics you need for each of those stages, what would that magical place be called?

Maybe it would be the Petrol Zone…. no wait!  I mean it would be…
