Fluentd & Docker, Turbocharging CDAP Apps, and Building a Data Science Platform — all of this next week!

Priyanka Nambiar is a Project Manager at Cask where she works with the engineering team simplifying their software development processes and lifecycle. Prior to Cask, she did business development and program management with eBay and Magento Inc.

After two very successful Big Data Apps meetups, Cask will be hosting the third Big Data Application meetup on October 14, 2015 at Cask HQ in Palo Alto.

This meetup includes an exciting lineup of talks:

  • The first talk will be about Integrating Fluentd and Docker. John Hammink from Treasure Data will introduce us to Fluentd, an open source data collector, that lets you unify data collection and consumption for better use and understanding of data.

John will show us via a live demo how Fluentd and Docker integrate to simplify the logging story of the user’s container-based apps.

  • The second talk will be by Milind Bhandarkar, CEO of Ampool, Inc. Milind will talk to us about how Ampool takes advantage of CDAP’s extensibility and enables fast analytical data pipelines. CDAP provides consistent developer interfaces to processing frameworks and storage abstractions, that allows developers to build Hadoop solutions using various processing paradigms.

This talk will also cover Ampool’s vision of modern data architecture and how CDAP and Ampool are working together towards that goal.

  • The final talk will be by David Chaiken, CTO of Altiscale, presenting five tips for building a successful data science platform, showing you how best available tools like Spark, fit together with the components of the Hadoop ecosystem.

More information about the abstracts, the speakers and their bios are available on the meetup page.

Doors open at 6pm and Cask will provide pizza and drinks, and a space to socialize with fellow attendees. We will also make the slides and video recordings available soon after the meetup. 

We are always on the lookout for interesting projects to showcase at the Big Data Apps meetups. Please reach out to me if you are interested in speaking at or sponsoring the next meetup.

Please RSVP if you haven’t already – I look forward to seeing you all next Wednesday!
