There were a ton of great presentations at Europe's top Big Data conference, DataWorks Summit. All of the tech talks were beyond capacity, so for those going to San Jose in June — get to your sessions early!
I am in the process of downloading all of the #DWS17 tweets with NiFi to do some analysis and Machine Learning.
I will post a follow-up article on using Apache NiFi, CoreNLP, Apache OpenNLP, Phoenix, HBase, Zeppelin, and Spark to analyze tweets for conference reporting.
The birds of a feather for streaming was awesome. There was direct access to Storm, NiFi, Beam, Streaming AnalyticsManager, and Avro committers. Some big news: Storm Runner for Apache Beam and Beam with S2S are in the planning stages!
All of my notes and photos are tweeted here.
A cool person from the conference: Davor Bonaci from Apache Beam and Google is a great resource!
Projects of much interest: Apache Flink, TensorFlow, and Apache NiFi.
Projects of renewed interest: Apache Hive, Apache HBase, Apache Storm, and Deep Learning 4J.
My theme of the conference: Apache Calcite everywhere!
Check out all of the presentations on LinkedIn here.
HDP 2.6 was released with lots of new features, including Druid in Technical Preview, Superset in Technical Preview, Hive LLAP 2.1, Spark 2.1, Livy, a Zeppelin upgrade, and many bug fixes and upgrades to Hadoop components.
