ABSTRACTS

Talk #1: CDAP 5 - Elevating to the Cloud, by Terence Yim, Google

CDAP is an open source data application platform for building and operating data analytic applications. In its latest 5.0 release, CDAP added support to run your application anywhere, including on premises as well as in the cloud. With this new capability, you are free to leverage the full cloud computation power to run your application at anytime, anywhere. In this talk, we will walk you through the design and showcase the flexibility that can be provided by this new feature, with real world use cases.

Talk #2: Apache Kylin - Extreme OLAP engine for big data, by Daniel Gu, Kyligence

Apache Kylin is an extreme distributed OLAP engine for big data, which provides sub-second latency for analytics queries and web-scale high concurrency. In recent months, Apache Kylin has released its v2.4.0, which brings lots of highlighted features, such as JDBC data source, cube planner, enhanced streaming ingestion etc. Also we've seen lots of excellent solution practices from the community like superset integration. In this session, Daniel Gu will outline the design ideas and technical basics of these features and solutions, and present the benefits with real use cases.

Talk #3: When Rotten Tomatoes isn’t enough: Analyzing Twitter Movie Reviews using DataStax Enterprise, by Amanda Moran, DataStax

Getting real-time insights is essential in this fast-paced world - like finding a good movie to catch this weekend. In this talk, we’ll use sentiment analysis on Twitter data about the latest movie titles to answer that age old question: “Is that movie any good?” We’ll show how we built the solution using Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark and DataStax Enterprise Analytics. This is a great talk to attend if you are new to the big data space, want to learn more about Cassandra and Spark, or just want to see a demo of DataStax latest product.
