    COPIOUSLabs TechTalk: The architectural underpinnings of C# with .Net

    COPIOUS

    COPIOUS is a user-centered digital experience agency. We build digital products with the user at heart and technology in our bones. We recently moved to a new office and now have a large space to host our TechTalks.

    About TechTalks:

    COPIOUSLabs TechTalks series meets every other Friday at 1pm at the COPIOUS offices. Our talks span artificial intelligence, new programming languages and techniques, computational linguistics, geographic data processing, systems and software architecture, augmented reality, network security, and more as proposed to the Copious engineering team.

    About this talk:

    Speaker: John Jessee

    As new programming languages emerge, Microsoft's flagship programming language has been evolving to keep up. See how C# and the .NET Framework have incorporated new features such as functional programming, non-blocking code, language integrated queries, and more. This talk compares C# and the .NET Framework to the languages found in the book, Seven Languages in Seven Weeks, and in particular COPIOUS' most "native" tongue, Ruby.

    All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to dann@copio.us along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.

    About this talk:

    Speaker: Dann Stayskal

    Graph databases offer a unique way of looking at data. Rather than the familiar tables of data, graph databases store data as relationships between named things. So, they're an ideal choice for social networks, geogrpahic route planning, and campaign finance modeling.

    In this week's tech talk, Dann Stayskal walks us through how to configure a graph database called Neo4J to answer a few questions about social graphs: out of all connections on facebook, twitter, google+, and linkedin, who would it recommend to follow next?

    This will be a public-accessible tech talk with no technical background necessary to follow along!

    All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to dann@copio.us along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.

    MongoDB allows for abstracted data storage, so Andrew will talk about implementations of this flexible data design pattern. State machine and its ability to extend a document asynchronously gets highlighted. We will talk about data abstraction, and how to abstract structured data into a schema-less logger to perform validation.

    In this TechTalk, Andrew will aim to describe clustering and replication as well as referencing and embedding in a simple language. The samples come fast but keep to explaining a simple topic. The talk diverges about how distributed database technology can be brought to firmware, how massive quantity small computing instances best leverage this technology, and what frameworks exist to leverage MongoDB on an upcoming project.

    All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to dann@copio.us along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.

    About this talk:

    Speaker: Joseph Jaramillo

    Every app needs to store data, and developers have lots of options for doing so. Perhaps you're saving JSON or XML to disk. Maybe you're even using custom serialization. What happens when you need to query this data? What about when you have so much data to display that you can't keep it all in memory? The answer is CoreData.

    In this COPIOUS Tech Talk, Joseph Jaramillo will introduce you to CoreData, the Apple database technology included with iOS and Mac OS X. You'll learn how to use an API to fetch data from a web service, store it in a CoreData database, and query it later. This is a hands on talk and there will be code involved! You are encouraged to bring a Mac loaded with Xcode to follow along.

    All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to dann@copio.us along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.

    Not many pieces of software can claim a 7 point manifesto, let alone deliver on all points, but the Remote Dictionary Service (Redis) stands as an outstanding example of code written with conviction. With just over 4 years since its initial release, many of the biggest sites online are leveraging Redis because of it's speed and simplicity.

    In this tech talk, we'll walk through the basic commands and various data types of Redis and also see how companies like Instagram, Craigslist, and Github are using it in their core architecture. Bring your unix based laptop to follow along.
