PDX Data Engineering: Apache Spark
Walmart Labs

For our first meeting lets get together and talk about using Spark in production. I can give a quick overview if necessary and then we'll open it up for discussions.

We can also talk about plans for the group and what kinds of topics and discussion you'd like to see in the future.

Intro to Cassandra
eBay Community Lounge

For this meetup, we are going to be doing a joint meetup with the DataStax Cassandra Portland Users group.

Archaic database technologies just don't scale under the always on, distributed demands ​of modern IOT, mobile and web applications. We'll start this Intro to Cassandra by discussing how its approach is different and why so many awesome companies have migrated from the cold clutches of the relational world into the warm embrace of peer to peer architecture. After this high-level opening discussion, we'll briefly unpack the following:

  • Cassandra's internal architecture and distribution model
  • Cassandra's Data Model
  • Reads and Writes ​​ You'll go home with enough Cassandra basics to get your feet wet and some resources to get your hands dirty.

Datalog, Data Transformation, and Apache Beam w/ Austin Haas
Puppet

Datalog is a powerful recursive query language that can be implemented in a few hundred lines of Clojure. It's a great introduction to logic programming and it can be used to solve real problems. It is also the basis for Datomic's query language.

Apache Beam is a data processing library that runs on Google Dataflow, a serverless distributed computing service.

In this presentation, I will explain Datalog, how it is used in Datomic, and how my team is using Datalog (in Clojure) to build flexible programs that transform large amounts of interdependent data in minutes with Apache Beam.

Bio: Austin is a senior engineer at Healthsparq, where he uses Clojure to transform healthcare data. He has been programming in Clojure for about 7 years. His interests include Logic Programming, Automated Planning, and Game Development.

Data Engineering Bootcamp by Epicodus + Data Stack Academy | Applications Close March 14th
Online (Portland)

We’re excited to offer a new cloud data engineering track in partnership with Epicodus beginning March 14!

This new track will run on the same schedule as the web development cohorts. It will have courses in Intro to Programming, Data Engineering Fundamentals, Big Data Engineering, and Cloud Data Engineering, followed by an internship. This track also offers a comprehensive career services curriculum, and after you graduate, we'll provide a year of career services assistance while you look for your first job in the tech industry. If you’d like to take a closer look at what to expect out of this track, you can check out our course overview here: https://www.epicodus.com/data-engineering


Did you know…

There are currently 40K Data Engineering jobs on Indeed! In fact, the 2020 Dice Tech Job Report found it had the largest increase of all tech jobs between 2019 and 2020. AND 81% of data companies plan on hire more Data Engineers.

The newest course offered by Epicodus and Data Stack Academy—which starts March 14th—helps students break into the Data Engineering field. These Portland-based companies curated a state licensed 27 week course—which includes an internship.

So what do Data Engineers do? They build the infrastructure that manages an organization’s data. Companies are collecting more data than ever before. In 2020, they amassed 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. That data is becoming their most valuable asset. Companies want people like you to manage it.

|| About Epicodus ||

Our president, Michael Kaiser-Nyman, founded Epicodus in 2012. After becoming frustrated with how difficult it was to hire programmers for his software company, he talked with other employers and discovered he wasn't alone. At the same time, he knew many people who were struggling to find work. He realized that if there were a school that taught practical software development skills, people could get great jobs and companies could hire the staff they need.

Epicodus's first class started in early 2013 with just Michael and 8 students. Since then, we've grown to over a dozen staff and over two thousand students and alumni.
