the Google Developers Group is pleased to sponsor talks by Google engineers Ryan Boyd and Marc Cohen with Google and hack/reduce. hack/reduce, of Cambridge dedicated to shaping the future of the big data-driven economy. We will have an inroduction to hack/reduce, including an introduction by executive Director Abby Fichtner
Crunching Big Data with Google Big Query - Ryan Boyd Google Developer Advocate
Applications which grow to web-scale generate massive amounts of data. Many developers end up throwing this data away because they can’t extract value from it without the necessary expertise or infrastructure.
Google knows Big Data -- our infrastructure processes 60 hours of YouTube video uploads every minute and many of our products have hundreds of millions of users. Google has developed custom technologies to analyze this data and make intelligent product decisions. We’ve started to open up some of these technologies as APIs which allow developers to concentrate on their business problems, while Google handles the underlying infrastructure.
Google BigQuery is a Big Data analysis tool born from an internal technology known as Dremel. BigQuery enables developers to analyze terabyte data sets in seconds using a RESTful API and a SQL-like query language. We'll demonstrate how you can incorporate Google BigQuery into your own applications, and how queries are processed underneath the covers. We’ll also show examples using public data sets and demos built by other developers like you.
Crunching Big Data in the Google Cloud - Google Compute Engine
Computing resources are faster, cheaper and smaller than ever, however, owning and maintaining those resources continues to be an expensive proposition. This talk will describe how you can leverage Google’s computing infrastructure, which routinely manages vast quantities of distributed data, at global scale, with sub-second response time, under extremely heavy load. Google Compute Enginemakes that infrastructure available to everyone. Learn how to harness this technology to tackle your most challenging problems through live demonstrations and code examples.
