We cordially invite
you to attend our upcoming TDWI Boston Chapter meeting on October 3, 2013. Come
meet other local professionals, swap business cards, share ideas, and exchange
career advice while listening to quality presentations in a vendor-neutral setting,
which is the hallmark of TDWI education. Our featured speaker will be Jeromy
Carriere, Technical Lead at Google. Jeromy will be talking about
“Infrastructure Enablers for Effective Large-Scale Data Pipelines”. Please see
our detailed meeting agenda below.
Thursday, October 3, 2013
12:00pm to 5:00pm
- Where: Children's
1 Autumn Street
Processing large amounts of data in a corporate setting requires infrastructural enablers to build and support effective large-scale data pipelines. Specifically, Jeromy will be pointing out some of the practicalities we uncovered as the space grew: reliable large dataset movement, metadata (e.g. for dup/replication management, provenance), reliable workflow systems, abstractions for programming, infrastructure version management. Writing a MapReduce function to run over a petabyte of data is the "easy" part.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Business-Case)
This is a new feature for the TDWI Boston chapter meeting. Bring your own business case or problem and we’ll discuss the issue together. Take advantage of the assembled brain-power spanning the technical and business side as well as multiple verticals. There’s always something to be learned from the issues that others are facing. TDWI chapter officers will have a couple of problem sets ready to seed the discussion.
