Developer of SMACK Stack, Chris Fregly Follows Up With PANCAKE STACK!  Global Workshops #ApacheSpark, #TensorFlow

Workshop Description

The goal of this workshop is to build an end-to-end, streaming recommendations pipeline using the latest streaming analytics tools inside a portable (take-home) Docker Container in the cloud.

First, we create a data pipeline to interactively analyze, approximate, and visualize streaming data using modern tools such as Apache Spark, NiFi, Kafka, Zeppelin, iPython, and ElasticSearch.

Next, we extend our pipeline to use streaming data to generate personalized recommendation models from using popular machine learning, graph, and natural language processing techniques such as collaborative filtering, clustering, and topic modeling.

Lastly, we production-ize our pipeline and serve live recommendations to our users!

You'll Learn How To

• Create a complete, end-to-end streaming data analytics pipeline

• Interactively analyze, approximate, and visualize streaming data

• Generate machine learning, graph & NLP recommendation models

• Production-ize our ML models to serve recommendations in real-time

• Perform a hybrid on-premise and cloud deployment using Docker

• Customize this workshop environment to your specific use cases

Target Audience

• Data Scientists and Analysts interested in learning more about the streaming data pipelines that power their real-time machine learning models and visualizations

• Data Engineers interested in building more intuition about machine learning, graph processing, natural language processing, statistical approximation techniques, and visualizations

• Anyone interested in learning the practical applications of a modern, streaming data analytics and recommendations pipeline


• Basic familiarity with Unix/Linux commands

• Experience in SQL, Java, Scala, Python, or R

• Basic familiarity with linear algebra concepts like dot product and matrix multiply

• Laptop with modern browser and ssh capabilities (Mac OSX, Windows, or Linux) 

Note: We provide a cloud instance for each attendee to access from your laptop. 

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to save your work and copy it locally to your laptop to use at home or at the office!
