    • Managing large datasets with uniVocity by Jeronimo Backes

uniVocity is a tool for processing large volumes of data very quickly. It is ideal for data migration, synchronisation and ETL processes. 

Jeronimo will be showing us how uniVocity can address various data migration and synchronisation problems in data-heavy processes. 

uniVocity is free for non-commercial use, with various licensing options available for commercial applications.



Info on getting to the Meetup:

Peoplebank offices are on the south-west corner of Flinders Lane and Queen St.  Doors lock at 6pm but someone from Peoplebank will be downstairs to let people in.  If when you get there, no one is present, call [masked] and we'll send someone down. We also will be having a raffle, so when you get to Level 13, there will be someone to greet you, get a name-tag, and also put you in the raffle draw. For those driving in, there is flat rate (~$10)  after hours parking on Market St, between flinders lane and flinders st.

    Hi all, here's the Intro/News slides for the October Meetup goo.gl/S6R07K

    I thought while Jeronimo's presentation was technical enough for the meetup it was essentially a sales pitch for his product. I sympathise with Jeronimo because it is a small company, but in general I am against pushing commercial products at Meetups.

      I generally agree with you Marc, but want to note that uniVocity does is free for personal use. Jeronimo also offered a free developer license to everyone that was in the room there which I thought was good.

      I'll also add that uniVocity did sponsor the food and beverages for the night. So even if you have no use of the tools, hopefully the pizza and socializing was good.

    Great introduction to the uniVocity product and ETL generally. A bit light on the Java side.

      Hi Jagdeep, we open up RSVPs 2 weeks before the event. Usually there is a message when they open but I notice its not there so I've updated the meetup description.

    Hey guys. I've just started teaching myself java a few days ago. Would it be still okay to come? Or would the discussions be quite advanced? I'm pretty interested in learning it.

      Andrew is right, the meets have a variety of skill levels and is a great place to socialize about Java in a relaxed environment.

      Very few people are experts in everything, so meeting others you can learn from is a a good thing.

      Okay cool! Yeah starting from basics. This is my first programming language btw. I've been doing some problems online learning like boolean, arrays, strings etc. But a friend suggested using http://docs.oracle.co...­ to learn it more in depth. So I'll try and learn a lot before I come!
      But it will be good to meet others and learn more!
