If You Have The Content, Then Apache Has the Technology! - Chris Mattmann, NASA
Within the ASF, there are a wide variety of projects with technologies
to help you store, retrieve, host, transform and generate content. This
talk will review the landscape of Apache content technologies, provide a
quick introduction to the more common and more interesting projects, and
flag up new and innovative features within them. It'll also highlight
talks from the rest of the week on many of the projects covered, so that
you'll know where and when to go to learn more about those projects and
technologies which catch your eye!

This is a new era of Nick Burch's famous talks that he has given at many ApacheCons to date.

Big Data Graphs and Apache Tinkerpop 3 - David Robinson, IBM
Learn how Apache TinkerPop 3, a recent Incubator addition, facilitates the inclusion of graph system technologies into production or data science environments. Graph systems have experienced a renaissance due to a renewed focus on understanding connections between data features in data sets. TinkerPop 3 supports both OLAP graph processors as well as OLTP graph databases, which are two ways of interacting with graphs. Learn how TinkerPop's vendor-neutral graph APIs, its Gremlin domain specific query language, and its graph computation model work together to provide a comprehensive approach for interacting with graph systems. TinkerPop is already supported by numerous commercial and open source graph databases, including Apache Giraph and, in the future, Apache Spark. Discover why TinkerPop 3 makes graph technology accessible and interchangeable in an analytics/data solution.

What's With The 1S And 0S? Making Sense Of Binary Data At Scale With Tika And Friends - Nick Burch, Quanticate
If you have one or two files, you can take the time to manually work out what they are, what they contain, and how to get the useful bits out (probably....). However, this approach really doesn't scale, mechanical turks or no! Luckily, there are Apache projects out there which can help!

In this talk, we'll first look at how we can work out what a given blob of 1s and 0s actually is, be it textual or binary. We'll then see how to extract common metadata from it, along with text, embedded resources, images, and maybe even the kitchen sink! We'll see how to do all of this with Apache Tika, and how to dive down to the underlying libraries (including its Apache friends like POI and PDFBox) for specialist cases. Finally, we'll look a little bit about how to roll this all out on a Big Data or Large-Search case.

SQL over Anything with Apache Calcite - Tom Barber, Meteorite Consulting
Apache Calcite is already used in a number of high profile Apache projects. Calcite allows you to create SQL(JDBC Compliant) interfaces over pretty much any inspectable object you want.

During this presentation we'll look at the history of Apache Calcite, various use cases, existing adapters. We'll also take a look at how to create simple interfaces to various objects, how to join datasources using data federation and caching options available to improve performance.
