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.

We'll have some cool giveaways at the end of the meetup, so be sure to show up - it will be a great night.
Let's pre-game RedisConf18 with The Silicon Valley Redis Meetup for some video games at San Francisco's Brewcade!
Meet fellow Redis Geeks over drinks and snacks and get a preview of all the cool things planned for RedisConf18. We'll get the conference app on your phone and have a few Redis IoT kits to give away to lucky attendees.
Come join us, it will be great fun and a chance to meet fellow Redis enthusiasts prior to the conference.
ps. We'll also be talking about our plans for a series of meetups on machine learning and data science starting in May.
I will be teaching a Redis Developer Workshop at Plug and Play in Sunnyvale open to any interested developers. The workshop will cover Redis data structures, performance, transactions, and the new module system in Redis 4.0. The workshop is free but you must pre-register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/redis-enterprise-workshop-silicon-valley-tickets-41926072010 to reserve a spot.
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.
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.

For this meetup we are excited to be partnering with the San Francisco Mesos Meetup to bring you a night of great talks! We'll be joined by Elizabeth K. Joseph, Developer Advocate at Mesosphere who'll discuss service discovery on DC/OS. We'll also be joined by Tague Griffith, head of Developer Advocacy at Redis Labs who will talk about building and deploying microservices with Redis on DC/OS.
Elizabeth K. Joseph - Service Discovery on DC/OS:
Service discovery in DC/OS allows you to connect to your applications without having to know where they are running. This is particularly valuable when you have an application fail and it is restarted on a different host. We will explore the two mechanisms of that DC/OS provides, Mesos-DNS and Named virtual IPs.
Tague Griffith - Building and Deploying Microservices with Redis on DC/OS:
The selection of a proper cache and data store is essential to delivering a highly performant Microservices architecture. Redis is a popular choice among developers for providing caching and storage services for microservices. This talk will look at deployment options for Redis within a microservices environment and some of the concerns deploying data stores in production..
