Followed by Q&A 

TOPIC

Twitter's VP and head of Platform Engineering will discuss how Twitter has rebuilt its platform to handle the massive scale that they need to handle, particularly during events that cause spikes.

SPONSORS

Diamond Web Services, Inc. has sponsored Raffi's flight. 
DWS is a boutique web & mobile development shop located in Venice, CA. Active in the open source community, DWS provides resources to help put on many of the tech meetups in Los Angeles, including this one.

Dataversity's new 2-day course on “Big Data Multi-Platform Analytics” will get Data Scientists, Data Warehousing and BI professionals up to scratch on Big Data, Hadoop, NoSQL DBMSs and Multi-Platform Analytics. How does Big Data fit within a traditional analytical environment and what skills do you need to develop for Big Data Analytics? All of these questions are addressed in this new knowledge packed workshop.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
