Talk 1: MiloSage: parallel data processing using SageMaker

MiloSage is an innovative homegrown solution to use SageMaker in an unconventional way to split the data in chunks to train the model in parallel with a shorter turnaround. The framework allows to train any model in a container and to configure to scale. Come and See!

Leveraging Big Data to deliver insights and personalized experiences to our customers. Passionate about all things data!

Andrew Conegliano is a data engineer who traded the cold winters of NJ for the earthquakes of CA. He likes to solve complex customers’ problems using Spark and AWS, and working on new platforms that help solve current and future data and ML instrumentation challenges. When not banging his head because of AWS misconfigurations, he’s either binging a TV series, at the gym or watching YouTube videos of track cars.


Talk 2: Rethinking Druid's User Experience

Apache Druid has always been a fast, powerful, and scalable, but it has never been "user friendly" from a UX perspective. This talk will examine how the Druid UX is being redesigned from the ground up. This will make Druid straightforward to get started with, load data into, and manage at scale.

Speaker: Vadim Ogievetsky, co-founder of Imply, cares about two things: making huge datasets accessible to everyone, and highly complex distributed systems easier to manage. Previously Vadim led the Application team at Metamarkets (acquired by Snap). He holds an MS in Computer Science from Stanford and a BA in Mathematics and Computer Science from Oxford.


Talk 3: Druid Roadmap Discussion

We will talk about Druid news, including details about the latest roadmap and releases.

Speaker: Gian Merlino, co-founder of Imply, a San Francisco based technology company, and a committer on Apache Druid. Previously, Gian led the data ingestion team at Metamarkets (now a part of Snapchat) and held senior engineering positions at Yahoo. He holds a BS in Computer Science from Caltech.
