    Featured speakers include:

    Vincent Freeh, Professor NC State University, HPCC Systems as a Service (Haas)
    There are numerous reasons to use an IaaS for HPCC Systems instead of dedicated hardware, especially if the workload does not execute 24/7. We developed a CloudFormation Template and an AMI for HPCC Systems and a reference architecture for HPCC Systems in AWS. Significant effort was expended to determine the best set of resources for HPCC Systems clusters. Furthermore, we created a program to create and manage HPCC Systems clusters in AWS from the command line. This talk will present the tools we created and also explain the reference architecture and many of the configuration options.

    David de Hilster, Consulting Software Engineer, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, New ECL IDE Features in 7.0
    The ECL IDE is an integrated development environment for ECL programmers to create, edit, and execute ECL code within the HPCC Systems platform. The latest 7.0 version includes new features and enhancements such as a more comprehensive autocomplete, tooltips and F12 capabilities. In this talk, David will discuss how users can leverage these features and more.

    Bob Foreman, Senior Software Engineer, HPCC Systems, LexisNexis Risk Solutions - ECL Tip: A Tiny Trove of TABLE Tidbits

    Jayashree Ukkinagatti, Rashtreeya Vidyalaya College of Engineering, India
    Set up Automatic Builds for the continuous integration of ECL queries stored in GIT using Jenkins

    Software developers work in an isolated team. If they need to integrate their changes with different code base, waiting for days to integrate their code may create many merge conflicts , may get hard to fix the bugs or may lead to duplicate efforts. In this presentation, Jayashree will speak about the setting up of automatic builds to integrate ECL queries stored in Git using the Jenkins deployment pipeline techniques, when the pull request is made on additions or changes to ECL queries stored in Git.

    Nicole Navarro, New College of Florida
    Measuring the geo-social distribution of Opioid Prescriptions

    Drug overdose was the leading cause of accidental death in the US in 2015, and the number of drug overdoses involving opioids in 2016 was 42,249 – an increase of 18% per year since 2014. In this talk, Nicole will explain how she utilized the open source HPCC Systems capabilities around knowledge engineering to create data features and interactive visualizations. These were designed to allow research into Drug Socialization across social groups and geographical regions with a focus on opioid prescription rates.
