What we're about

This meetup is focused on the Future of Data and the open community data projects governed by the Apache Software Foundation. Geared towards developers, data scientists and ALL Data enthusiasts who are building modern data applications. Our meetups cover all data -- data-in-motion and data-at-rest. Meetups provide an opportunity to listen, share and work hands on with other technologists in the open source and open community Apache tools.

Big Data Processing Engines - Which One Do I Use?

Ultimate Software Group - Phase 10

South Florida Big Data People, I wanted to kick off the New Year to host a Big Data community event and get everybody together that is working on Big Data Projects in 2019. We will have Ashish Narasimham, Solutions Architect at Hortonworks, presenting on Big Data Processing Engines and would love to have as many people out to network and ask questions. Look forward to it! Agenda: - 6:00 - 6:30 PM Networking and Pizza - 6:30 - 7:15 PM Big Data Processing Engines - Which one do I use? (Abstract and Bio Below) - 7:15 - 8:00 PM Q&A and Networking Abstract: Columnar storage is an often-discussed topic in the big data processing and storage world today - there are hundreds of formats, structures, and optimizations into which you can store your data and even more ways to retrieve it depending on what you are planning to do with it. This plethora of options came about due to the need to not only ingest data quickly using On-Line Transactional Processing, or OLTP, tools, but because of the need to consume and analyze data with more and more speed using On-Line Analytical Processing, or OLAP, tools. Thousands of different use cases each have their own specific needs and thus, many options surface to choose from. For example, reading stock market ticker data requires a completely different mindset than analyzing quality metrics in a manufacturing line. With all these choices, it's easy to get lost when navigating to your end goal: choosing a tool that works for you. Bio: Ashish Narasimham is a Solutions Architect based out of Atlanta, GA with a background in software consulting and product management. Before Hortonworks, he was working as a front-end, back-end, and full-stack software engineer throughout his last job consulting at Daugherty Business Solutions so he knows his way around the stack. He loves talking tech and has worked on many projects in the Hadoop ecosystem across the various technologies in the HDP, HDF, and DPS products, specializing in cloud technologies and Hortonworks’ integration with them. Please feel free to approach him with your Big Data (or anything else) questions!
