Concurrent, Inc. to Present at Upcoming Big Data and Developer Industry Events

Supreet Oberoi and Ryan Desmond to Deliver Sessions on Cascading and Cascading Lingual at Silicon Valley Code Camp and Big Data TechCon

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2014) - Concurrent, Inc., the leader in data application infrastructure, today announced that Ryan Desmond, solutions architect, will present at the ninth annual Silicon Valley Code Camp, taking place Oct. 11-12 in Los Altos Hills, Calif., and Supreet Oberoi, vice president of field engineering, will deliver two sessions at Big Data TechCon, taking place Oct. 27-29 in Burlingame, Calif.

At Silicon Valley Code Camp, Ryan will provide an introduction to Cascading, the most widely used and deployed application development framework for building data-centric applications that enables organizations to operationalize their data and solve business problems.

At Big Data TechCon, Supreet will deliver a talk on how organizations can increase Hadoop utilization with their data warehouses using Cascading Lingual, an open source project that allows users to utilize existing SQL skills to instantly create and run applications on Hadoop. Additionally, Supreet will discuss Cascading and how organizations can leverage the popular application development framework to future-proof big data investments against emerging technologies. 

Concurrent Presentations At-A-Glance

Silicon Valley Code Camp
What: "Application Development on Hadoop Using Cascading"
Who: Ryan Desmond, solutions architect, Concurrent, Inc.
When: Sunday, Oct. 12 at 1:15 p.m. PT
How: Register at https://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/Account/CreateAccount

Session Description
Cascading is the most widely used and deployed Java-based application development framework for building Big Data applications on Apache Hadoop. This open source, enterprise development framework allows developers to leverage their existing skillsets such as Java, SQL, Scala and more, to create enterprise-grade applications on Apache Hadoop without having to think in MapReduce, or scripting query languages like Pig and Hive. In this session, Ryan will provide an introduction to Cascading and dive into using it to build applications.

Big Data TechCon
What: "Increase Hadoop Utilization With Your Data Warehouse"
Who: Supreet Oberoi, vice president of field engineering, Concurrent, Inc.
When: Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 11:45 a.m. PT
How: Register at http://www.bigdatatechcon.com/registrationdetails.html

Session Description
The Hadoop ecosystem is an effective platform for conducting data-engineering tasks. However, mission-critical BI applications continue to run on traditional data warehouse platforms. In such enterprise use cases, Hadoop is emerging as a technology that augments existing platforms for processing these data-intensive tasks, requiring organizations to not only migrate workloads onto Hadoop for processing, but also extract data for reporting and analysis.

In this session, Supreet will demonstrate how to leverage SQL to improve utilization of Hadoop with existing data sources. Attendees will learn how to utilize Cascading and Cascading Lingual for Big Data application development, how to integrate Hadoop with an enterprise data warehouse through one SQL statement, and how to quickly integrate BI tools with Hadoop.

What: "Future-Proof Your Big Data Investments With Cascading"
Who: Supreet Oberoi, vice president of field engineering, Concurrent, Inc.
When: Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 3:45 p.m. PT
How: Register at http://www.bigdatatechcon.com/registrationdetails.html

Session Description
New computation fabrics with different interfaces and design patterns are continually being introduced into the market. As a result, if companies wish to leverage new innovations in Big Data platforms, they must constantly break and rebuild their operating models to keep up.

In this session, Supreet will discuss how organizations can future-proof Big Data investments against these emerging technologies with Cascading. Supreet will demonstrate how to build applications on emerging fabrics like Tez and Spark with existing skillsets, as well as give a tour of the Cascading community -- a robust ecosystem that extends the power of Cascading applications with various integrations, dynamic programming languages and data source connections.
