- Big Data in the Cloud
Have you ever wondered how Google Search Engine could query billions of webpages in a matter of milliseconds? What are the innovative technologies behind Amazon shopping experience? How does Microsoft software serve millions of users? One thing they have in common is the use of Cloud technology. The rise of Cloud technology has been a crucial facilitator of Big Data adoption. For the scalability, flexibility and near-infinite computing power, public cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services(AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, enable data storage, processing & analysis at scale, and possibly at even a lower cost. This meet-up,hosted by Cloudreach, consists of two parts. In the first half, you will learn about how Cloudreach engineers use public cloud services to augment Big Data solutions; and in the second half, you will have the opportunity to have a fireside chat with special guests followed by a networking reception. Agenda: 18:30 Doors open - Registration & Welcome Reception 18:45 'How to build a Serverless ETL pipeline in Azure' - Gabriel Filip Cloud System Developer at Cloudreach Gabriel will walk us through the steps to design ETL pipelines based on best practices and build them using Azure DevOps and basic Azure Functions to extract, transform and load the data from one data source to another. 19:05 'Time travelling in data science' - Gabriele Alberti, Senior Cloud System Developer at Cloudreach This presentation will bring us on a journey about data science developments. Gabriele will present the various approaches to data science and the challenges that come with it. On the second part of his presentation he will discuss machine learning techniques and when (not) to use it 19:25 'Data Analytics in AWS' - Genta Roko, Cloud Data Engineer at Cloudreach An overview on how to design data analytics environment in AWS according to best practices.

We'll be using python - one of the most in-demand programming languages in the industry, popular for use in web development, machine learning, data science, and cloud infrastructure. You'll work with mentors to solve different level of challenges or to learn the basics by building text based games such as Tic Tac Tow, Hangman, Rock Paper Scissors and more. Your mentors will cater the complexity of the coding activities to your level and guide you throughout the evening. Please bring a laptop and a charger. Agenda 6pm - Doors open & Registration. Food and drinks will be provided throughout the evening.
