Big Data Montréal #30 – Tuesday November 4th 6:30pm at the RPM Startup Centre

Tickets: bdm30.eventbrite.ca

Big Data Montreal would like to invite you to its thirtieth meeting!

Join us on Tuesday November 4th at 6:30pm to attend a conference, as well as to network with other Big Data enthusiasts from Montreal!

The meeting will take place at the RPM Startup Centre, which is located at 420 Guy street.

All are welcome, no matter if you already have some experience with Big Data technologies or if you’re simply curious to learn more.

We have three scheduled presentations:

  • Discover you inner search engine by Alexandre Rafalovitch, author of the book “Apache Solr for Indexing Data How-to”
    Rapid introduction to how a startup/small business can add search to their existing stack, using open-source Apache Solr (in English). I’ll do a live demo with sample data and show rapid iterations on getting it into Solr and making it searchable. This talk is the second in the Search Engines series (following the talk on ElasticSearch in October by Colin Surprenant).
  • Everything you always wanted to know about Hadoop, but were afraid to ask! by Dan Mazur, Scientific Computing Analyst at Calcul Quebec, McGill University
    Hadoop is a widely-used, open-source framework for storing and processing large-scale data sets. During this presentation, you will learn the basic concepts behind Hadoop and MapReduce. Many of the confusing buzzwords associated with these technologies will be clarified. This talk is designed for professionals who would like enough information to discuss Hadoop with their corporate customers or to make an informed decision about whether to consider Hadoop within their organizations.
  • Best Practices for Interacting with the Spark Community by Nan Zhu, contributor to the Apache Spark project
    Flash presentation on how to ask questions, report bugs and submit patches to the Spark community.

And three flash presentations:

  • Mike Milner, CTO at Immunio
    Will be introducing his company, Immunio, and talk about their overall Big Data architecture (microservices, kafka, mesos, etc.).
  • David Lauzon, ÉTS
    BDM: 30th event and counting.
  • Julia Evans, Kernel Hacker
    Spying on Hadoop with strace (BDM 31′s teaser).

N.B.: This edition will be in English.

Finally, you are also welcome to join us at the nearby Brasseurs de Montreal, after the presentations, for some casual networking (please use the appropriate ticket so we know how many people to expect).

Please tell your friends and colleagues :) !

P.S.: We are (as always) looking for speakers for future editions of BDM, so if you’re interested in presenting (or if you know people who are), please don’t hesitate to write to us at bdm-admin@googlegroups.com :) !
