First up, Andy LoPresto spoke about everything Apache NiFi; his slides are here. We did an awesome meetup with lots of beer, pretzels and NiFi. I ran a live demo of a Raspberry Pi analyzing pretzels. Did I mention pretzels? Germany has a lot of pretzels.
My talk with MiniFi and Raspberry Pis is here.
I did a talk on Apache NiFi + IoT + Apache MXNet and it's pretty interesting use case for open source IoT with AI.
Best Practices with Apache NiFi at Renault! I am really impressed with what they have done with their manufacturing process throughout Europe with industrial scale Apache NiFi.
Andy did a killer Birds of Feather with Apache NiFi and some Apache Beam. If you have never done a BOF, I highly recommend it. It's nonformal and everyone gets a chance to participate with committers and users.
The next day, Andy gave a great MiniFi talk, which really set the focus for the day.
I gave a talk on Apache NiFi + Apache MXNet which focuses on how to run deep learning at the edge, on HDP nodes, on HDF nodes, with MXNet Model Server and through YARN.
There was also a great Apache Metron talk. Apache Metron does some awesome cybersecurity work so it uses Apache NiFi for some of the ingest.
Andy gave a BotNet + Apache NiFi talk, which should be of interest to any cybersecurity analyst or researcher.
Andy gave another Apache NiFi talk on Software Development Lifecycles.
A list of all my talks are here:
