2:00 P.M. - 2:45 P.M.  Session 1
Title:  Agile Data Science: Building Hadoop Applications

( )

Speaker:  Russell Jurney

Abstract:  Mining data requires a deep investment in people and time. How can you be sure you’re building the right models? What tools help you connect with the customer’s needs? With this hands-on presentation, you’ll learn a flexible toolset and methodology for building effective analytics applications. Agile Data (the book) shows you how to create an environment for exploring data, using lightweight tools such as Python, Apache Pig, and the D3.js (Data-Driven Documents) JavaScript library. You’ll learn an iterative approach that allows you to quickly change the kind of analysis you’re doing, as you discover what the data is telling you. 

Bio of Speaker: Russell Jurney cut his data teeth in casino gaming, building web apps to analyze the performance of slot machines in the US and Mexico. After dabbling in entrepreneurship, interactive media and journalism, he moved to silicon valley to build analytics applications at scale at Ning and LinkedIn. He lives on the ocean in Pacifica, California with his wife Kate and two fuzzy dogs.

Title:  The new Lambda Expressions for Parallel Programming in Java SE 8

Speaker: Sekar Srinivasan, Principal Sales Consultant,

Oracle’s Embedded Java and Berkeley DB team

Abstratc:  Java has evolved over the years to be the change that software developers need as well as adapt to the changes that the industry is seeing. However the feel of java has remained the same. The latest wave of change is happening in the form of Big Data on the data center side on one hand and Internet of Things on the other. This session will start with a brief overview on Oracle's Java Strategy being right in the center of these changes. The session will briefly walk through new features in JDK7, with a focus on fork/join framework.

Lambda Expressions is the single largest upgrade being to the Java programming model. In addition, it makes the fork/join framework more powerful. The session will introduce Lambda Expressions in Java SE8, why there is a need for Lambda expressions and how it will benefit parallel programming. The session will introduce parallel streams in Java SE 8. The session will end with a quick look at Oracle's Java SE support model.

Bio of Speaker:  Sekar Srinivasan is a Principal Sales Consultant in Oracle’s Embedded Java and Berkeley DB team. He started as an IBM Mainframe developer and moved on to C programming and started working as a Java Programmer since JDK 1.1. He has written several applications interfacing several databases. Sekar joined Oracle as a part of the Sun Microsystems acquisition and has been working in Sun/Oracle for 12 years.

    I am here now. It is easy to get to the building by entering the driveway of the building off of Warren ave and driving thru to the adjoining parking lots. It is obvious that all the other cars circling the parking lot and looking for the event did not get your late word of the cancellation? Is it possible to still have the event?

    • Dr. Sanhita S.

      Sorry, I already cancelled the event.
