What we're about
This is a group for people who work down in the trenches with datasets of any size: generating, moving, cleaning, storing, and analyzing them.
I'm a data engineer by trade; I like to build big systems to manage unruly data at high speeds. I started this group to meet other people (programmers, data scientists, and founders) who are interested in managing data at scale. The plan is to meet once a month or so; at each session there'll be a talk on some aspect of data management, such as: SQL/NoSQL databases
Data pipeline technologies such as Kafka
Cloud computing and datacenter automation
Frameworks and design patterns for building out scalable data architectures
with an emphasis on live code and real-world solutions that people can use in their own problem domains.
