- Evolving Data Analysis with RediSearch & Elastic Machine Learning & Data Frames
⭐️ REGISTER HERE: https://www.meetup.com/Elasticsearch-San-Francisco/events/264618015/ At this months event we have teamed up with Redis Meetup group to bring you two talks one related to Elastic and one Related to Redis Talk1: Evolving Data Analysis with Elastic Machine Learning and Data Frames by Tarik Bennett Summary Version 7.3 of the Elastic Stack introduced a powerful new feature — continuous index transforms! Transforms let you convert existing Elasticsearch indices into new summarized secondary indices, which opens doors to new insights and analytics. In this talk, we'll discuss how Elastic helps you evolve your analysis with both anomaly detection and creating indices that summarize behavior by entity. Bio Tarik Bennett is a Senior Solutions Architect at Elastic. He joined Elastic as part of the Swiftype team in 2017 where he focused on our Search Solutions. Tarik has a passion for search in all its various forms. From building simple web interfaces to applications in deep learning. He has a diverse background in both client-facing and technical roles. He holds a B.S. in Neurobiology from University of California, Davis. Talk2: Introduction to RediSearch by Kyle Davis Summary RediSearch is a Full-Text and Secondary Index engine running as a module inside of Redis. It has advanced features, like exact phrase matching and numeric filtering for text queries, that are not possible or efficient with traditional Redis search approaches. It also features aggregations, which is an incredibly powerful feature for a real-time search. Aggregations 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. Bio Kyle Davis is a full-stack architect and Head of Developer Advocacy at Redis Labs. He has written extensively on Node.js and Redis, including his 33 chapter Node Redis series of blog posts here: https://medium.com/@stockholmux/the-node-redis-series-e812085c917f. Kyle holds a BS from University of Southern Indiana and a Masters of Science from the University of Central Missouri.

- .NET Cloud-Native Bootcamp
.NET developers haven't had access to the capabilities necessary to become cloud-native (better software, faster) .... until now. To attend, you must register at https://bit.ly/303x7XT Join Pivotal and Redis Labs in this one-day bootcamp. You will learn exactly how to create cloud-native applications with .NET. You'll hear about patterns and anti-patterns, and then put hands on the keyboard to put best practices into action. We’ll talk about .NET Framework, .NET Core, Pivotal Cloud Foundry on Microsoft Azure, with Redis and the exciting new Steeltoe library for microservices. Whether your .NET apps are staying on-premises or moving to a public cloud, these principles will help you build more scalable, resilient, and adaptable systems that drive your competitive advantage. Exclusively for this workshop: How do .NET developers interact with the database to influence application development? With a developer-loved, yet operationally reliable database (Redis). Our friends from Redis Labs will demo a database running on Azure with the flexibility of cloud native, plus the operational resilience. By the end of the day, you’ll get exposed to what you need for refactoring existing .NET apps, and building entirely new ones in a cloud-native way. Join us in San Francisco for a great day together! Who should attend: .NET developers with 1+ years of experience writing web-based applications. Azure, Redis and Pivotal Cloud Foundry experience is not required. Bring a laptop with … A code IDE or editor for .NET apps (e.g. Visual Studio 2017, Visual Studio Code). Visual Studio Code is a free download - https://code.visualstudio.com/download CF command line tool installed - https://docs.cloudfoundry.org/cf-cli/install-go-cli.html#installer Agenda 8:30-9:00 AM Arrival, Networking and Breakfast 9:00-9:15 AM The need to be good at software. Some brief examples and data points to highlight the growing importance of delivering a compelling software experience. 9:15-10:00 AM Microservices, and decomposing the monolith. A look at what microservices are, and how people start to create a microservices architecture out of a monolithic app. 10:00-10:15 AM What does "cloud-native" mean? Define “cloud-native” and look at key criteria for building apps in a cloudy way. 10:15-10:30 AM Break 10:30-11:15 AM Introducing Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF). Why run PCF on Azure? What role do “platforms” play in a cloud-native environment? We’ll look at PCF and its core components. 11:15-11:30 AM Q & A 11:30-12:30 PM Don’t let your database be the bottleneck. Redis Labs will demonstrate why in cloud development, deciding the operating model for databases matters just as much as how to build apps quickly, scale them, and keep them up and running. 12:30-1:00 PM Lunch and short address by Magenic 1:00-4:30 PM Hands On Labs: Build .NET Core apps and run them on Pivotal Application Services for Windows (PASW). Use the Steeltoe framework to implement actuators and cloud connectors to make use of environment variables and app instances. Bind your .NET app to Azure SQL using the Azure Service Broker, to combine the best of PASW and the Azure Cloud. 4:30-4:45 PM Begin Your Cloud-Native Journey: - Options for self-learning through the Steeltoe sample apps and Pivotal Web Services Speakers Prasad Bopardikar - Partner Solutions Architect, Pivotal.

- Redis-ML, Deep-Learning and Scale
The May meeting of the San Francisco Redis Meetup will kick off a series of meetups on machine learning, statistic, and data analysis/data science. The first meetup in the series with be a joint talk featuring Tague Griffith from Redis Labs talking on Redis-ML and Malo Marrec the co-founder of Clusterone speaking on deep learning and distributed training. Malo's Talk: A Tale of Scale - Speeding up Deep Learning with Distributed Training Developing and training distributed deep learning models at scale is challenging. We will show how to overcome these challenges and successfully build and train a distributed deep neural network with TensorFlow. First, we will present deep learning on distributed infrastructure and cover various concepts such as experiment parallelism, model parallelism and data parallelism. Then, we will discuss limitations and challenges of each approach. Later, we will demonstrate hands on how to build and train distributed deep neural networks using TensorFlow GRPC (parameter and worker servers) on Clusterone. Tague's Talk: Making Real-Time Predictive Decisions with Redis-ML Most of the energy and attention in machine learning focused on the model training side of the problem. Multiple frameworks, in every language, provide developers with access to a host of data manipulation and training algorithms, but until recently developers had virtually no frameworks to build out predictive engines from trained ML models. Most developers resorted to building custom applications, but building highly available, highly performant applications is difficult. Redis in conjunction with the Redis-ML module provides a server framework for developers to build predictive engines with familiar, off-the-shelf components. 6:00 - 6:30 pm - Food and Networking 6:30 - 7:45 pm - Talks 7:45 - 8:00 pm - Q & A, Wrapup, and Networking We'll have some cool giveaways at the end of the meetup, so be sure to show up - it will be a great night.

- Increase Application Performance with SQL Auto-Caching
Join us for the first San Francisco meetup of 2018! To start out the year, we will feature Rolland Lee of Heimdall Data talking on using SQL auto-caching to introduce the benefits of caching with no code changes. Increase Application Performance with SQL Auto-Caching Configuring caches is complex. Engineering teams spend a lot of resources building and maintaining cache subsystems. It requires manual intervention (i.e. what to cache and invalidate) which is risky. Now there is a solution that provides granular SQL analytics while safely auto-caching into RedisLabs. Heimdall Data intelligently caches, invalidates and synchronizes across cache nodes. No more misconfigurations or stale data. There are zero changes required for your existing application or database. AGENDA: 6:00 - 7:00 pm Happy Hour and Food 7:00 - 8:00 Increase Application Performance with SQL Auto-Caching 8:00 - 8:30 p.m. Networking and Follow-up At the end of the meetup, we will be holding a drawing for attendees to win one of three Adafruit IoT starter packages. Food and drink will be provided for happy hour. Roland Lee (@heimdalldata) Roland Lee's background is in application networking. He has been a developer and product manager in various startups and large companies. All through his career, his industry focus has been to increase the performance of Internet user data.
