Bryan Fink (https://twitter.com/hobbyist) on "Fluctuations of Hi-Hat Timing and Dynamics in a Virtuoso Drum Track of a Popular Music Recording" ( http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0127902 )
Bryan hacks distributed systems by day, and does almost anything else by night. His interests in percussion and computers began nearly coincidentally over twenty years ago in a small town on the Great Plains. The combination has led to him having strange thoughts about time and coordination.
Henry Robinson (https://twitter.com/HenryR) from Cloudera (http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera/en/home.html) will present the paper "No compromises: distributed transactions with consistency, availability, and performance" ( http://sigops.org/sosp/sosp15/current/2015-Monterey/printable/227-dragojevic.pdf )
Henry is an engineer at Cloudera, where he has worked for five years on a wide variety of distributed systems. He currently works full-time on Impala, a SQL query engine for data stored in HDFS. Before Cloudera, he worked on ad-hoc networking at Cambridge University. He writes infrequently about databases and distributed systems at http://the-paper-trail.org/
Doors open at 6:30 pm; the presentation will begin at 7:00 pm; and, yes, there will be food.
After the paper is presented, we will open up the floor for discussion and questions then we will head over to the bar!
