About this talk

The purpose of the workshop will be to share knowledge, spark innovation and further build and link the relationships within our HPCC Systems community. 1. Fujio Turner, Solutions Architect, Couchbase - Mobile/IoT & HPCC Systems ​Fujio will discuss the challenges around IoT and address the following questions: As there are more mobile and embedded devices all generating more data, what does that mean now and for the future? What has to change in an organization's infrastructure to keep up? And how can I best take advantage this new stream of information? 2. Jacob Pellock, Sr Director Software Engineering, LexisNexis - Operationalizing jobs on Thor utilizing Python, Git and HPCC Systems client tools - Part I So you’ve setup your HPCC Systems cluster and you’ve written your ECL code. Now you want to take the ECL you’ve written into production. Jacob will explain what technologies we’ve leveraged in bringing our LexisNexis data warehouse into production. 3. Roger Dev, Sr Architect, LexisNexis - Basic Linear Algebra Subsystem (BLAS) and Parallel Block BLAS (PBBlas) libraries for HPCC Systems. Manipulation of matrix data via Linear Algebra operations lies at the heart of many data-mining and machine-learning techniques. New modules for HPCC provide highly scalable and performant implementations of these operations. BLAS provides an industry-standardized set of highly-optimized linear algebra operations. PBBlas extends these operations to mega-scale, splitting the operations into parallelizable units that can be balanced across an HPCC cluster. This talk provides an introduction to BLAS, describes the techniques and features of PBBlas, and provides an overview of the PBBlas interface. 4. Richard Taylor, Chief Trainer, HPCC Systems - HPCC Systems Training: Updates and Deep Dives on Cool Code Richard will be presenting an update on what’s going on with ECL/HPCC/SALT/KEL training courses. He will also be selecting some interesting code snippets.
