    The Shape of Revolutions: How Things Change Ellen Friedman | MapR Consultant, Author, and Apache Software Foundation Committer @ellen_friedman

    There’s a revolution underway in how people work with data. For one thing, streaming data is no longer seen as a special use case – and that’s a good thing because streaming is a better fit to the way life happens. Stream-first architectures are useful even beyond real-time processing. Another big idea has to do with where data lives: the big data revolution showed us that data structures spanning more than one machine are a good thing. But a new revolution involves data structures that span more than one continent (geo-distribution) and that go from on-premise to cloud.

    In this talk, Ellen will tell a few stories that show how innovation with real impact can happen, including the shift in thinking and in engineering culture that underlie successful change. We’ll look at emerging technologies and how best to use them, new designs in architecture, and flexible practices such as a microservices style that have huge implications in IoT and other large-scale analytical workflows.

    Apply Graph Theory to Infrastructure as Code | Mitchell Hashimoto, Founder, HashiCorp

    Graphs are mathematical structures used to model relationships between objects. Modern infrastructure is a series of resources (objects) that have dependencies and ordering requirements (relationships). Thus, modern infrastructure can be represented as the mathematical construct of a graph. With just a few nodes, the relationships between resources in an infrastructure are easy to understand, but at a certain scale, the relationships become impractical to reason about.

    Terraform relies on years of graph theory research to model the relationships between infrastructure resources so operators can safely manage and change infrastructure resources across bare metal, IaaS, PasS, and SaaS. Operators can avoid unforeseen consequences using Terraform

    Building Modern Data Pipelines James Ward | Principal Platform Evangelist | Salesforce.com

    Our modern systems are no longer just simple CRUD apps. We now need to deal with massive, distributed, real-time data systems that ingest potentially terabytes of data, support real-time and batch analytics, do machine learning, and support a host of web and mobile app interfaces. This session will walk through architectural patterns and technologies for building these modern data pipelines. You will learn about Apache Kafka, a variety of databases, and data processing frameworks like Spark.

    Nike Tech Talks

    Nike Consumer Digital Tech is hosting tech talks for the PDX tech community on Feb. 11th. We're bringing two great speakers to the Nike campus and there will be time to network and enjoy snacks and drinks. Kelsey Hightower, Staff Developer Advocate at Google, will be giving a talk on Kubernetes and Karl Matthias, Lead Systems Engineer at Nitro, will be giving a talk on Docker: Behind the API.

    Kubernetes: talk will take a detailed look at Kubernetes, the open source orchestration system for Docker containers, and explore the key terms, concepts, and vocabulary introduced by the project. The remainder of the talk will focus on the technical details of Kubernetes and bring the concepts to life through a collection of live demos that walk attendees through deploying a real world application using Kubernetes.

    Docker Behind the API: Containers and Docker have been making headlines for a couple of years. But beyond the command line tools and Docker Remote API, what is the Docker Engine doing? What exactly is a Docker container? In this talk, we'll take a pass through some of the Docker internals, look at how it interacts with the kernel and the network, and review some of the mechanisms that underpin the containerized future.

    Real Time Operational Analytics at the Speed of Thought with Apache Spark Jags Ramnarayan / Chief Product Visionary, SnappyData

    Apache Spark has come a long way since it began as a faster batch oriented map-reduce solution for Hadoop. With support for streaming, machine learning, and most recently SQL, Spark aspires to become a player in the realm of real time analytics at scale. However, much of its underpinnings remain batch oriented and unsuited for highly concurrent OLAP workloads. In this talk, we will describe how we are innovating and renovating Spark's core underpinnings to make it suitable for real time operational analytics, helping create a unified platform that supports row and column data, high concurrency, and approximate query processing at scale.

    Scala, OODA and Entropy: Thoughts on Continuous Learning Adam Rosien / Engineer, Compellon / @arosien

    In this talk, Adam will discuss Compellon's approach to so-called prescriptive analytics, which basically means "Ok, but what the *&^% should I do now!?". He'll talk about the barriers blocking domain experts from using analytic systems, how data scientists bias their models, and the evolution of Compellon's engine, written in Scala with Apache Spark.

    Feel free to invite colleagues who would be interested in attending.
