This event will be exceptional and I am happy to announce that some really great performers from all around the world will be present! The meetup will be held in English without translation.
This month we joined forces with some of the best Budapest meetups to organise a Meetup Evening as a warmup event for Craft Conference, and guess what, the Craft guest speakers are going to be there, too! Each meetup will have a different guest, you can find the list and the speakers schedule on the Craft site. All events are free to visit for anyone. Meetups will open gates at 6PM, we provide pizza and drinks, and the talks will start from 6:30PM. The attendees will get two coupons, which can be redeemed at Anker't (google maps) after the meetup for beer, wine or fröccs.
We are co-hosting our event with Big Data Meetup. No double RSVP needed, but take it seriously when all seats are reserved.
Using MySQL as a pseudo-NoSQL Database - BJORN FREEMAN-BENSON @bjorn_fb
In the early minimum-viable-product days of New Relic, we decided to focus on building our product rather than building a custom time-series database and thus we used MySQL for storing not only normal relational data (users, accounts, invoices, etc) but also for what you think of as NoSQL data. This decision has held up remarkably well as we now have almost 100,000 accounts reporting billions of metrics every day and we're still using MySQL. I'll talk a little about some of the tricks that we've used to do this including some of our sharding decisions (pro and con) and some of the ways we've learned to create and use indexes.
RAMCloud: Low-latency DRAM-based storage - DIEGO ONGARO @ongardie
This talk will give an overview of RAMCloud, a scalable, high-performance, general-purpose storage system which keeps all data in DRAM at all times. Our goal is to make it easy for developers to harness the full performance potential of large-scale DRAM storage. RAMCloud fetches data in 5-10 microseconds, it's durable and available, and it's designed to scale to thousands of servers. If successful, RAMCloud will enable new applications that manipulate large-scale datasets much more intensively than has ever been possible before.
