Lightning Round of Tech Talks!

To mix things up, we'll be doing three smaller presentations this month, food and drink starting at 5, presentations starting at 5:30:

Presenter: Scott Gerstl 

Bio: Scott is a software engineer at the Noel Group in Stevens Point WI., who specializes in writing frameworks and reusable code. Scott has a passion for learning new things. He also don’t like writing the same thing twice.

Presentation: Principles of Abstracted Programming - A look at how to take the redundancies out your code by encapsulating your processes and code logic by passing them what they need to function. This goes beyond passing strings and ints, and treads into the realm of inspecting structures and types of objects at runtime using reflection and generics. Learning to recognize code you have written twice, abstracting it, and encapsulating it, will help protect your code to future changes and bugs.

Presenter: Drew Frisk

Bio: Drew is also a software engineer at the Noel Group. He specializes in mobile development for Android and iOS, but also focuses on investigating and implementing open source technologies in his free time.

Presentation: The focus of the talk will be creating a JavaScript module for use in node.js applications. We’ll look at installing NPM (node package manager), setting up a project, writing a module for NPM, publishing it, and then including it in a new project for use. This will give you an overview of everything you need to know for working with node.js.

Presenter: John Omernik

Bio: Utilizing experience, big data and various analytic techniques to understand threat intelligence, John Omernik is tasked with innovation in identifying malicious activity and developing new controls to prevent it. He has been working in the financial industry for over 10 years, and has established relationships internationally, through diverse sectors, via active mutual sharing of intelligence.

Presentation: Security Data Warehouse (Hadoop, Mongo, RabbitMQ, Storm)
