SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Advanced Groovy Tips and Tricks

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Kenneth Kousen

Core Groovy Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/advanced-groovy-tips-and-tricks

Groovy has a very easy learning curve for Java developers, so many people become Groovy users without realizing all it can do. This presentation will examine features of Groovy that can make your life easier once you're past the initial adoption stage. Prerequisite: Some Groovy knowledge

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Distributed Platform Development with Groovy

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Dan Woods

Core Groovy Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/4pieter-springone2gx2014distributedplatformdev

Building an Enterprise Application Stack means the necessity to have a service tier that can scale to the demands of business. This talk will discuss the approach to developing a scalable enterprise architecture, and will demonstrate implementations based on the variety of technologies available from the Groovy ecosystem, including Grails, Spring, Spring Boot, and Spring Integration.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: IoT Realized - The Connected Car

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Derek Beauregard, Phil Berman, Michael Minella, Darrel Sharpe

Big Data Track Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/iot-realized-the-connected-car

For this session we will explore the power of Spring XD in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). We will look at a solution developed with Spring XD to stream real time analytics from a moving car using open standards. Ingestion of the real time data (location, speed, engine diagnostics, etc), analyzing it to provide highly accurate MPG and vehicle range prediction, as well as providing real time dashboards will all be covered. Coming out of this session, you’ll understand how Spring XD can serve as “Legos®” for the IoT.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Big Data in Memory

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014. Big Data in Memory

Speaker: John Davies, C24

Big Data Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-one2gx-2014-john-davies-41130273

OK so everyone’s into big data but they’re usually talking about persistence, disk or more recently SSD, how about memory? We could simply add a few terabytes of RAM but even at $100 per GB that’s going to cost a LOT. What if we could reduce the size of the data by 50 fold and effectively bring the cost RAM down towards cost of disk? Keep Spring Integration, Spring Batch, GemFire in-memory cache, RabbitMQ messaging but reduce your data down to binary, yes bits and bytes rather than objects. Less garbage, less network overhead, same APIs but big-data in memory. John will show a Spring work-flow consuming 7.4kB XML messages, binding them to 25kB Java but storing them in just 450 bytes each, 10 million derivative contracts in-memory on a laptop.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Asychronous design with Spring and RTI: 1M events per second

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Stuart Williams

Big Data Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/williams-1m-events

An application designer usually has to choose where to trade flexibility for specificity (and thus usually performance); knowing when and where to do so is an art and requires experience. This talk will share over a decades worth of experience making these decisions and the learnings from developing Pivotal's successful Real Time Intelligence (RTI) product using the latest versions of Spring projects: Integration, Data, Boot, MVC/REST and XD. A walk through the RTI architecture will provide the base for an explanation about how Spring performs at hundreds (and millions) of events/operations per second and the techniques that you can use right now in your own Spring applications to minimise resource utilisation and gain performance.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Building a Recommendation Engine with Spring and Hadoop

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Michael Minella

Big Data Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/building-a-recommendation-engine-with-spring-and-hadoop

The Amazon’s and Google’s of the world have had Ph.D.’s locked up in back rooms for years creating algorithms to get you to click on things and subsequently buy stuff. One of the big things that those smart people have been working on are recommendation engines. Today, a recommendation engine isn’t something that only the Amazon’s of the world can have. With an hour, and a handful of open source tools, we’ll build a recommendation engine based on the data from the website we probably spend the most time on…StackOverflow. We’ll use Spring XD and Spring Batch to orchestrate the full lifecycle of Hadoop processing (ingest, process, export) and use Apache Mahout to provide us with the recommendation processing. A basic understanding of Hadoop concepts (what Map/Reduce is) and Spring (basic D/I configuration) is expected for this talk.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Become a data-driven Organization with Machine Learning

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Peter Harrington

Big Data Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-one2gx-2014peterharrington

Does your organization collect data? Lots of data? Does your organization make use of all that data they have collected? In this session you will learn what you do with machine learning, and what are the building blocks for an application that uses machine learning. This session will show you how to go from data you have collected to creating predictions for customers. You will learn how valuable insights into your data can be gleaned while building the code to make predictions.
