AWS ECS

Hello folks! Just a reminder that our upcoming Data Masters meetup is tomorrow! We already have about 20 people that have signed up, but there’s always room for more!

For this event, we will learn about Amazon’s EC2 Container Service!  ECS is container management service that allows you to easily deploy application services into Docker containers in an automated fashion. This gives you the ability to create a highly flexible and scalable platform with a micro-services design.

Come learn about it at this event at TamboWorks in South Miami, from 7:00pm to 9pm!  It’s located at 5790 Sunset Drive in South Miami.

You can RSVP here.  See you soon!

Our next Data Masters event is coming up!AWS ECS

A properly defined micro-services architecture can bring enormous benefits, especially when leveraging the latest in container technologies, such as Docker. But there are many potential pitfalls, if you’re not careful.

For this event, we will learn about Amazon’s Elastic Container Services (ECS), and how to build a Continuous Integration / Deployment pipeline for easy and safe deployments in the cloud.

Our guest speaker will be Dave Shanker, currently the Senior Manager of Infrastructure Engineering at World Fuel Services, and the CTO for PowerCalc.

Dave will give a presentation on the basics of ECS, and also give us a live demonstration on how to build a highly scalable environment in the Amazon cloud using containers.

Come learn about it at this event on Tuesday, December 20 at TamboWorks in South Miami, from 7:00pm to 9pm!  It’s located at 5790 Sunset Drive in South Miami.

You can RSVP here.

Can’t wait to see everybody there!

Hello folks! Just a reminder that our upcoming Data Masters meetup is only three days away! We already have over 50 people that have signed up, but there’s always room for more!Apache Spark

For this event, we will learn about Apache Spark!  Apache Spark is a general purpose, high performance cluster computing framework, especially used in Big Data. Spark replaces all the headaches of creating long and complicated data flows that might be needed on other platforms. Spark unifies different workflows under a simple and concise API so we can create very complicated data pipelines in minutes.

Come learn about it at this event at TamboWorks in South Miami, from 6:30pm to 9pm!  It’s located at 5790 Sunset Drive in South Miami.

You can RSVP here.  See you soon!

Apache Spark

For this event, we will learn about Apache Spark!  Apache Spark is a general purpose, high performance cluster computing framework, especially used in Big Data. Spark replaces all the headaches of creating long and complicated data flows that might be needed on other platforms. Spark unifies different workflows under a simple and concise API so we can create very complicated data pipelines in minutes.

In the new IoT world, the enterprise is aiming for streaming solutions that allow us to use standard query language and machine learning algorithms across hundreds of terabytes at the same time. Spark lets us do all that without compromising performance, running up to 100x faster than other classic solutions.

Our guest speaker will be longtime Data Masters member, Nicolas Perez. He’s a software engineer at IPC, working on their Big Data platform, and he’s a MapR Certified Spark Developer.

Spark is the future of high performance computing, and it something you want to get your hands on.

Come learn about it at this event at TamboWorks in South Miami, from 6:30pm to 9pm!  It’s located at 5790 Sunset Drive in South Miami.

For this event, we will explore how to leverage Redis to gain super high speed access to data in various structures.

Redis created a new category in the database world. It allows you to solve complex problems by creating relations between data structures, and execute custom commands across these relations using Lua scripts.  At the same time, it provides flexible schema-less design and allows you to easily scale your database as if it was a simple key / value data store.

Redis Labs speakers, Devin Ramga & Madhu Murty will discuss the advantages of running Redis Labs Enterprise Cluster.  They will also provide a live demonstration of creating and accessing in-memory data using Redis.

RSVP for our Ft Lauderdale location or for our Miami Beach location!

Our next Data Masters meetup event is coming up soon!snowflake_logo

For this event, we will explore how to manage large scale data warehousing in the cloud.

The cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) are producing data at an unprecedented rate, recently surpassing data held on premise in data centers all over the world. Organizations continue to struggle capturing, transforming, and analyzing these complex data structures mixed with traditional relational style datasets using conventional MPP and/or Hadoop infrastructures.

We will have a guest speaker, Kevin Blair from Snowflake Computing, to demonstrate how Snowflake has tackled these challenges.

Snowflake Computing has taken a new approach by building a brand new database from scratch that is specifically designed for the cloud (elastic, decoupled, etc) and is capable of handling both structured and semi-structured data (XML, JSON, AVRO) at petabyte scale. Using ANSI-compliant SQL greatly simplifies data pipeline architectures and provides an alternative to the “data lake“, while allowing for analysis via existing BI tools in your environment.

We will have two locations for this event!  RSVP links are here:

Wednesday, September 16 from 7pm to 9pm at General Provision in Ft. Lauderdale.

Thursday, September 17 from 7pm to 9pm at Rokk3r Labs in Miami Beach.

Please join us for a discussion of these topics and a demonstration (focused on parsing semi-structured data) of this game changing technology.
