Getting Started with Big Data on AWS

10AM – 11AM Architectural Patterns and best Practices for Big Data on AWS

In this session, we simplify big data processing as a data bus comprising various stages: ingest, store, process, and visualize. Next, we discuss how to choose the right technology in each stage based on criteria such as data structure, query latency, cost, request rate, item size, data volume, durability, and so on. Finally, we provide reference architecture, design patterns, and best practices for assembling these technologies to solve your big data problems at the right cost. Level: 200

11AM – Noon Spark and the Hadoop Ecosystem: Getting started with Amazon EMR

Amazon EMR is a managed Hadoop service that makes it easy for customers to use big data frameworks and applications like Apache Hadoop, Spark, and Presto to analyze data stored in HDFS or on Amazon S3, Amazon’s highly scalable object storage service. In this session, we will show how to use Apache Spark on AWS to implement and scale common big data use cases such as Real-time data processing, interactive data science, and more. Then we will walk through a demo to show how you can deploy a Spark environment running on Amazon EMR within minutes. Level: 200

Building Big Data Solutions with AWS

10AM – 11AM Building a Data Lake on AWS

A Data Lake allows you to store massive amounts of data in its original form, without the need to enforce a predefined schema. Data Lakes enable a far more agile and flexible architecture, which make it easier to gain new types of analytical insights from your data. In this session, we introduce key architectural concepts to build a data lake using Amazon S3 as the storage layer and making this data available for processing with a broad set of analytic options including Amazon EMR and open source frameworks such as Apache Hadoop, Spark, Presto, and more. Level: 300

11AM – Noon Working with Apache Kafka and Amazon Kinesis on AWS

Streaming data processing has become increasingly prevalent and different platforms and frameworks have emerged to ingest, process, and analyzing streaming data in a durable and scalable way. In this session you will learn about two popular choices for streaming data applications on AWS, namely Apache Kafka and Amazon Kinesis. We will help you understand how these services work together so you can quickly build real-time applications and get actionable insights from streaming data. Level: 200

Noon-1PM Lunch Break

1PM – 3PM Workshop 2: Building a Streaming Data Platform on AWS  

Evolving your analytics from batch processing to real-time processing can have a major impact on your business. However, designing and maintaining applications to continuously collect and analyze large amounts of data per hour can be extremely difficult without the right tools. Using Amazon Kinesis you can easily ingest and analyze streaming data without the need to build any complex pipelines. In this workshop, we will show you how you can build your first real-time processing application on AWS. Level: 200

3PM – 5:30PM Workshop 3: Abstract and Session Coming Soon! Level: 200
