This group is for Data Engineers, Software Developers, Machine Learning Engineers and Data enthusiasts for all skills who are keen to discuss and learn new things. The aim is to meet monthly to discuss a wide range of Data Engineering topics such as developing ML/AI applications, developing data pipelines, DevOps for ML etc.
Looking forward to seeing all Data enthusiasts there!
The first NZ Data Engineering meetup will take place on Thursday 19th September. This is a free event that brings Data Engineers, Machine Learning Engineers, AI Engineers and general data enthusiasts together to discuss a wide range of data engineering topics.
In this meetup, Regan Murphy from Snowflake will provide an overview of what Snowflake is and how you can use it to build your Data Lake.
Snowflake is the first data warehouse built for the cloud, from the ground up. With an architecture that’s built to take advantage of the unlimited storage capacity of the cloud, coupled with the cheaper per-TB cost structure of commodity cloud products like AWS S3, Azure Blob, and GCP Cloud storage, you no longer have to choose between cost and performance - you can have both!
In this session you’ll see where Snowflake can fit into your existing Data Lake architecture and how easy it is to start analysing those Avro, JSON, ORC, Parquet, XML files - complete with joins to your structured data warehouse data.
Arrive for Networking and pizza at 5:30. The talk will now start at 6:00pm
