Apache Incubator: Where It Is Coming From and Where It Is Going - Roman Shaposhnik, Pivotal
If you think you know Apache Incubator and its role in ASF -- think again! All the projects in the foundation are constantly evolving and Apache Incubator is no exception. Up until recently, It used to be the only gateway into the ASF family for new projects. While it is still predominantly the case, the emergence of pTLPs and fundamental rethinking of the mentorship approach makes it the most exciting time for new projects to come to the foundation. This presentation will cover the old school Incubator polices and will point out how they are changing and what new alternatives are now available for podling communities. It will also focus on areas where we are still experimenting with the process, how it relates to the ASF board of directors and how you can help speed things up. Finally, a few battle stories will be shared and wounds put on display. This outgoing Chair has a few to show.

Introduction to Zeppelin - Moon soo Lee, NFLabs
Apache Zeppelin (incubating) is interactive data analytics environment for distributed data processing system. It provides beautiful interactive web-based interface, data visualization, collaborative work environment and many other nice features to make your data anayltics more fun and enjoyable. LeeMoonSoo will going to demo Zeppelin's features to show how it helps data analytics.

Zeppelin provides integration with Apache Spark. Yet Zeppeiln has got flexible architecture to support various data processing backend. This presentation will describe how other projects integrate Zeppelin and leverage it with an example.

As well as discussing current project roadmap.

Apache MRQL (incubating): Advanced Query Processing for Complex, Large-Scale Data Analysis - Leonidas Fegaras, Univ. of Texas at Arlington
Apache MRQL (incubating) is a new query processing system for large-scale, distributed data analysis. MRQL is more powerful than other query languages for distributed data analysis because it can operate on more complex data and supports more powerful query constructs. With MRQL, users are able to express complex data analysis tasks, such as PageRank, k-means clustering, and matrix factorization, using declarative queries exclusively, while the MRQL query processing system is able to compile these queries to efficient Java code that can run on multiple distributed processing platforms (currently Apache Hadoop MapReduce, Hama, Spark, and Flink). In this presentation, Leonidas Fegaras will give a brief overview of the MRQL query language and query processing architecture, will compare MRQL with other related Apache projects, and will discuss current state and future plans.

Apache Ignite (incubating): Anatomy of an In-Memory Data Fabric - Dmitriy Setrakyan, GridGain
In this presentation, we will describe the strategy and architecture behind Apache IgniteTM (incubating), a high-performance, distributed in-memory data management software layer that has been designed to operate between both new and existing data sources and applications, boosting application performance and scale by orders of magnitude. We will dive into the technical details of distributed clusters and compute grids as well as distributed data grids, and provide code samples for each. As integral parts of an In-Memory Data Fabric, we will also cover distributed streaming, CEP and Hadoop acceleration. This presentation is particularly relevant for software developers and architects who work on the front lines of high-speed, low-latency big data systems, high-performance transactional systems and real-time analytics applications. - Apache Ignite is either a registered trademark or a trademark of the Apache Software Foundation in the United Stated and/or other countries.

Apache NiFi: Better Analytics Demands Better Dataflow - Joseph Witt, Onyara
In this presentation, Joe Witt will outline the fundamental challenges of enterprise dataflow at scale and the resulting implications for analytics. Key capabilities of Apache NiFi (incubating) are designed to solve these dataflow challenges. Joe will address the importance of flow-based programming concepts, real-time command and control, and data provenance to provide a powerful platform to automate the flow of data between critical infrastructure systems in a complex globally distributed enterprise.
