According to the 2018 DOMO report, by 2020 each human will be generating 1.7 Mb of data per minute and that around 1/3 of that will be processed on the cloud. There is going to be a need to create infrastructure that are able to handle this data in a sustainable way.

DataOps, or data operations, focuses on data management practices and processes that improve the speed and accuracy of analytics, including data access, quality control, automation, integration, and, ultimately, model deployment and management.

DevOps Porto and DSPT are joining forces to explore the DataOps topics together. Join us for some DataOp'ing and beers ;)

Talk 1
Title: Creating Data Based Solutions ASAP

Abstract: Data Analytics it's a field in which we can find people working with very different backgrounds and with very different tools, This mixture of tools, roles and backgrounds can make very painful the process of generating new data based solutions fast, with a good level of quality and with confidence in the work you've made. The purpose of this talk it's to provide an introduction to the DataOps methodologies and to show the need of good practices creating data based solutions

Short bio: Diego works at Gradiant as an R&D Engineer focused on Data and AI. He is also an AI Research Master Student and Vigobrain AI MeetUp Group CoOrganizer. The kind of work which he do goes from small clusters management to ML/DL based on data from user interactions on different kind of scenarios, so he is involved into each step related to the data based solutions that creates my team.

Talk 2:
Title: S.M.A.C.K.ing the insights from your data

Abstract: There was a time, not long ago, when Data Science flourished and Big Data was everything. Well, no one really knew what it was (just like the teenage sex joke), but you had to have it! Such behavior created a series of Anti Patterns for Data Science teams: from the cotton candy-powered Data Unicorn™️ to the Second-grade Data Plumber™️, going through the multi-title Jack of all (Data) Trades™️ to the fabulous Trophy Data Scientist. This talk will take you on a journey that hopefully leads to (not another buzzworded concept) DataOps. And with such great knowledge, comes great... technology! We'll also cover the S.M.A.C.K. Stack, because honestly, you wanna do things The Right Way™️!

Short bio: Filipe Coelho is a Senior Software Engineer specialized in the realm of Big Data. He got his PhD in Informatics Engineering at FEUP while doing R&D on Machine Learning at INESC TEC. More recently, Filipe focused on establishing Production-grade Big Data platforms at companies such as Farfetch, Prozis and now Hostelworld mentoring DataOps teams.
