Apache Hadoop and its large family of related projects is a critical part of large scale Big Data analytics in the cloud. In this talk we will discuss feedback from users of our Apache Hadoop based service HDinsight. We will pull back the covers on this service and delve into how we’ve integrated open source components such as Hadoop, Pig, Hive, Oozie, Tez, Zookeeper and others.
Users of HDinsight have provided valuable feedback which has led our team to contribute directly to some of these project communities. As you would expect our users have also benefited from the contributions of others. We’ll look at some of our contributions to projects like Hadoop, Hive and YARN and, more importantly, we’ll examine how you might leverage this work in your Hadoop workloads.
Finally, we’ll look at how our partnerships with other community members have resulted in both easier deployment of Big Data apps to the cloud and accelerated innovation in these Apache projects.
The tone and tenor of conversations in a community is a large part of whether a community succeeds, yet that’s often a hard concept to model and understand. Using a humorous approach, I’ll demonstrate behaviors that create a hostile community (and by contrast, those that create a welcoming community).
We’ll look at the “Defcon Insult Scale for CONversations” (the DIScon level), from mildly insulting to abusive, and at key signifiers of each level. Moving on, we'll tackle the more subtle forms of riling folks up (ways you can assume ignorance, belittle people, and/or just be condescending). I’ve even created a “starter list” of helpful phrases that people can use as writing prompts when they want to ensure that folks take things the wrong way
(phrases like “You may have noticed” and “I’d just like to point out” and “I don’t mean to be [a pedant, sexist, etc], but…”).
Once we’ve talked about what “high DIScon” situations look like (and feel like), we’ll talk about why they make for unpleasant communities, and why that’s bad. At this point it’s not uncommon for a host of objections to be raised, from “Well, so-and-so is the leader of the
community, and as long as she’s that way, I won’t be able to change anything” to “Etiquette is stupid; people should just say what they mean,” so we’ll spend some time debunking many of the common excuses for what is, essentially, poor behavior.
Finally, we'll spend some time talking about steps that individuals can take to reduce the “DIScon level” of the communities in which they participate and why doing so is so critical for FOSS's survival.
Project Geode is the newly open sourced engine that powers Pivotal GemFire. Attend this 3 hour hands-on lab to get a quick start in becoming a Project Geode developer-user. Work with the founding contributors and experts and walk away with a running cluster for your future work.
Why participate in the key signing? Among other things, all Apache releases are PGP-signed; but a key with no signatures attesting to its own authenticity isn't very useful. Bring your key (which you will have emailed to our special address) and sign. You will need a pen, and some manner of identification.

Please come for an informal meetup for Apache Kafka. Hear about other people's experience or share your own experience of using Kafka. Ask questions to Kafka committers and SREs. We plan to have a few short presentations and lots of time for Q&A.
Explore state of the art of Tooling for Cordova Devs using a variety of platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows). Speakers will include developers from Microsoft, Adobe, Ionic and others.
Did you know that less than 1% of the 4 million AP Exams taken last year was for Computer Science?
At Apache everyone is a volunteer. You already know how powerful volunteering can be. TEALS (teask12.org) is another way of volunteering, but in this case to build a stronger IT sector in the future by teaching the next generation of Computer Scientists and Software Engineers. Through TEALS you can help high school build sustainable Computer Science programs throughout the country. These students are the future of the IT industry. By team teaching with an experienced classroom teacher, you will be able to hand-off the course materials and knowledge to them. They will then be able to maintain and grow a sustainable CS program in the school on their own.
This BoFs is a chance to find out more about TEALS. Come along and ask whatever questions you have, suggest schools looking for help, offer some volunteer time, suggest ways in which the ASF might further help programs like TEALS and much more.
Finance market prediction has always been one of the hottest topics in Data Science and Machine Learning. However, the prediction algorithm is just a small piece of the puzzle. Building a data stream pipeline that is constantly combining the latest price info with high volume historical data is extremely challenging using traditional platforms, requiring a lot of code and thinking about how to scale or move into the cloud. This session is going to walk-through the architecture and implementation details of an application built on top of open-source tools that demonstrate how to easily build a stock prediction solution with no source code - except a few lines of R and the web interface that will consume data through a RESTful endpoint, real-time. The solution leverages in-memory data grid technology for high-speed ingestion, combining streaming of real-time data and distributed processing for stock indicator algorithms
