The organizers warn that there are a limited number of seats, and that pre-registration is REQUIRED.

Speaker: Akmal Chaudhri (Technology evangelist for Apache Ignite and GridGain)

Workshop topic:
In-Memory Computing Essentials for Data Scientists

6:00pm - 6:20pm - ODSC Intro, Pizza & Refreshments, Networking
6:20pm - 7:50pm - Workshop
7:50pm - 8:00pm - Q&A

Attendees will be introduced to the fundamental capabilities of in-memory computing platforms that boost highly-loaded applications, research projects, risk analysis and fraud detection tasks by storing and processing massive amounts of data in memory and on disk across a cluster of machines.

These capabilities and benefits will be demonstrated with the usage of Apache Ignite which is the in-memory computing platform that is durable, strongly consistent, and highly available with powerful SQL, key-value and processing APIs.

By the end of the workshop the attendees will learn how to:
* Deploy a distributed Apache Ignite cluster.
* Preload data into the cluster deciding how much RAM is to be available for storage needs.
* Create custom calculations and algorithms and utilize cluster’s resources for their execution.
• Solve optimizations problems by simulating the process of biological evolution.
* Apply machine learning algorithms supported by Apache Ignite.

Workshop prep: Getting ready for the workshop is fast and easy. Just follow this guide and you'll be set!
