Data & Applications Across the Void :: Distributing Systems
Eliot Center (First Unitarian Church)

Today distributing applications is relatively easy, until you get to the data side of things. This is where the complexity in most applications comes into focus, where does the data go? How do I replicate or synchronize the data? How do or where do I cache data? What’s the geographic issues with data in one place and applications in another? How does the gravity of the data affect my application?

This talk will hone in on key details around implementing a true distributed system across geographically dispersed areas and how to provide the end user a solid synchronized experience while using the application. Examples will be provided with hybrid computing solutions and distributed software solutions including distributed databases, PaaS Deployment packaging and other key technologies.

Anna Bannanas Cafe, St Johns

Tonight at MaptimeStJohns, we will review some compiled leaflet maps using several of the leaflet pluggins. We will go through some live custom examples using humangeo's dvf pluggin, we will use postgis and output geojson, geocsv and topojson to add to our leaflet maps, and also discuss some temporal mapping tools.

Bring your laptop with leaflet installed and a webserver available. Have a server scripting language such as php or python and postgressql/postgis installed. If you don't have a laptop, come anyway and you will be able to see these tools in action, as well as receive any materials handed out at the meetup. Bring a flash drive so you can take a copy of the data home.
