  • RediSearch - A Redis-powered search engine

    Talk Description: One of the key announcements at RedisConf was the aggregation engine for RediSearch (version 1.1.0). Aggregations are an incredibly powerful feature for a real-time search engine like RediSearch. They allow for data to not only be queried, but summarized mathematically to gain analytical insight. In this talk, Kyle Davis will give a brief crash course in RediSearch query and aggregations as well as several demonstrations. About Kyle Davis: Kyle is a full-stack architect working full-time as a Technical Marketing Manager at Redis Labs. He has written extensively on Node.js and Redis, including his 33 chapter Node Redis series: https://medium.com/@stockholmux/the-node-redis-series-e812085c917f. Kyle holds a Bachelors of Science in Computer Publishing and Telecommunications from the University of Southern Indiana and a Masters of Science in College Student Personnel Administration from the University of Central Missouri.

  • Building light-weight Microservices using Redis & NodeJS

    Talk: "Building light-weight Microservices using Redis" Description: Building Microservices can be a daunting experience. Small teams often struggle with the dizzying array of tools required to build, test and maintain services. In this talk we'll examine how to address key microservice concerns using Redis as one of the few external infrastructure dependencies! Presenter: Carlos Justiniano, Chief Software Architect Flywheel Sports (bio: http://cjus.me) 6:00pm - Doors Open, Food and Drinks, Networking 6:30pm - Tech Talk as Joint Meetup with Microservices NYC Meetup sponsored by Redis Labs. Topic: "Building light-weight Microservices using Redis" by Carlos Justiniano of Flywheel Presentation Outline: The challenges of building Microservices - What is and isn't a microservice - What makes building microservice hard? - Identifying key microservice concerns - Teaser for how those concerns will be addressed using Redis - What we built at Flywheel - Quick demo of Hydra services Distructuring Hydra to see how it leverages Redis - Redis as a directory service - Keyname spacing - The power expirations - Presence managements using hset / hget / hgetall - Messaging using pub/sub and key namespacing - Queue management using rpush / rpoplpush / lmem - Batching operations - Using scan instead of keys - Microservice flight recorder using lpush / ltrim Building a similar library in your favorite language - Hydra is built using NodeJS - Creating a similar library using Go, Python, C/C++ Building tools that further extend what we've seen - A look at how Hydra-Router leverages Redis for service discovery and routing

  • Location Aware Web & Mobile Apps using Redis

    NY Redis invites you to "Location-Aware Applications with Redis". We'll look at how the geospatial indexing features of open source Redis supports geographical data queries from your application. Using a 'bike sharing app', we will parse publicly available data feeds provided by bike share systems around the world (CitiBike in New York City, Hubway in Boston) and load it into Redis. From there, we'll build a query API to find nearby bikes using location, and update the availability data in real-time based on rentals in the system. Example code will be provided in Python, but it is very accessible to developers unfamiliar with the language. As described on it's website (https://redis.io), "Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker." Its support of useful datatypes and highly optimized access methods make it popular for many layers in the stack. Redis has consistently been ranked as the top key-value datastore by DB Engines ( https://db-engines.com/en/ranking/key-value+store ) and has been available in AWS ElastiCache since 2013. It is a worthwhile NoSQL option to consider for your toolbelt. This talk will cover datatypes and APIs for handling points, sets, set searches and intersections for geographic, time-series and live real-time data at speed. Agenda: 6:30 pm Networking w/ Food & Drinks 7:00 pm Welcome 7:15 pm "Build Location Aware Web & Mobile Apps using Redis" by Tague Griffith (https://twitter.com/tague) 8:30 pm Q&A & Wrap-up About the Speaker: Tague Griffith is a self-professed database geek who runs the developer relations program for Redis Labs. At Redis Labs he focuses on supporting and growing the Redis developer community through community meetups, technical training, and various technical materials. Prior to joining Redis Labs, he lead the internal infrastructure team at the photo sharing site Flickr building large scale distributed systems and infrastructure to support monitoring, caching and image serving.

  • (beer, swag & pizza) Serving Machine Learning Models with Redis & Apache Spark

    Free beer, pizza, swag & lots more! Tague Griffith, Head of Developer Advocacy, Redis Labs In this action-packed session we will look at how Redis 4.0 and the Redis-ML module can be used out of the box to provide a real-time decision making service. Using Apache Spark, we will implement a machine learning pipeline and discuss the types of predictive models (decision trees, regressions, etc.) that are supported by Redis-ML. You will also learn how to load Spark models into Redis using the available toolkit, and how to implement real-time decision making. Making real-time decisions using predictive models is one of the key obstacles in successfully deploying a machine learning strategy. Building customer services to support reliable real-time decision making with scale can be a monumental challenge; by the end of this fun-filled session you will be empowered to architect such systems with ease and confidence. Tague Griffith, Head of Developer Advocacy, Redis Labs Tague Griffith, Head of Developer Advocacy at Redis Labs, has over 20 years of experience in Silicon Valley as a software engineer and architect building large scale distributed systems and infrastructure. He currently heads up the developer relations and advocacy program at Redis Labs. Prior to joining Redis Labs, Tague held positions with Apple, Netscape, Yahoo/Flickr and GoPro. He has a BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford University with a specialization in database systems.
