Willem Koopman – Lead Systems Engineer @ Scape Technologies - @secretbatcave - Batch processing on the Cloud: party like it’s 1999
At Scape we run an arbitrarily number of processes on our ~1Pb dataset to automatically create machine readable maps. Cloud platforms provide thousands of machines at a click of a button, however it's still surprisingly hard to make a batch processing system. It’s even harder to make it simple, cheap and reliable.
Join me as I guide you through the highs and lows of trying to process Medium Data™ on a mixed pipeline (Python, C, Cuda and a smattering of machine learning frameworks) entirely in the cloud.

About me: I spent the first ten years of my career as a sysadmin in the VFX industry (Framestore, Foundry & DNEG) Dealing with everything from broken mice, disks and keyboards, all the way up to nursing clustered files systems and debugging fluid simulations. Currently I'm the Lead Systems Engineer at Scape Technologies, where we are building a Cloud-Based Vision Engine that allows camera devices to understand their environment, using computer vision.

Raghavendra Prabhu – Distributed Systems Engineer @ Yelp - @randomsurfer - Cassandra in Docker at Yelp: Challenges and Opportunities
This talk is about the opportunities in reliability and availability of such a Dockerised Cassandra deployment and challenges that we have faced while running Cassandra inside a container.

Yelp is a website and mobile application that connects people with great local businesses and revolves around the connections between them. To facilitate these applications, Yelp has hundreds of microservices deployed and updated in the back-end every day. To support these microservices, Yelp has a polyglot architecture comprising of datastores such as MySQL, Cassandra, Elasticsearch and so on.
Raghavendra Prabhu has been at Yelp since 2015 working as a Distributed Systems engineer around datastores such as Cassandra and Elasticsearch. Prior to that, he worked at Percona as the Product Lead of Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) and at Yahoo as a System Engineer.
