Here’s a breakdown of the schedule:

Selecting the Right Big Data Tool for the Right Job, and Making It Work for You
Eddie Satterly | Day 1 – Friday May 9, 2014 | 5-6PM 
Join our CTO, Eddie Satterly, as he speaks on the various types of big data solutions—from open-source to commercial solutions—and the specific selection criteria and profiles of each. As in all technology areas, each solution has its own sweet spots and challenges either in CAP theorem, ACID compliance, performance or scalability. This class will provide an overview of the technical tradeoffs for the list of solutions in technical terminology. Once the technical tradeoffs are reviewed, Eddie will review the cost and value of open-source solutions versus commercial software, and the trade-offs that folks must take to choose one over the other. The next phase will go into great detail on use cases for specific solutions based on real-world experience.

Deathmarch Through the Internals of Storm + Trident
Flip Kromer | Day 2 – Saturday May 10, 2014 | 5-6PM
Join our co-founder, Flip Kromer, as he deep-dives into Storm+Trident, the incredibly exciting open-source framework for streaming analytics. Storm enables scalable high-throughput processing by programs in your language of choice, on distributed networks of commodity servers. Trident extends Storm to allow exactly-once processing, enabling large-scale aggregations and advanced analytics in real-time. You’ll leave knowing enough about the Storm+Trident internals to be able to reason about your programs’ performance and confidently bring it to production.
