Meetup: Write powerful Big Data Applications easily with Spring XD - Thursday, April 10th
presented by Derek Beauregard, Senior Field Engineer, Pivotal
1:30pm - Gilpin Room

Spring XD aims to provide a one stop shop for writing and deploying Big Data Applications.    It provides a scalable, fault tolerant, distributed runtime for Data Ingestion, Analytics, and Workflow Orchestration using a single programming, configuration and extensibility model.  By not requiring developers to rationalize all of this themselves across the many different solutions available today, Spring XD greatly reduces the inherent complexity of Big Data development.   It's all built on proven projects like Spring Integration, and Spring Batch.  You'll see for yourself how this heritage combines to provide a scalable runtime environment, that is easily configured and assembled via a simple DSL.

Painless build and deploy for YARN applications with Spring - Thursday, April 10th
presented by Derek Beauregard, Senior Field Engineer, Pivotal
2:30pm - Gilpin Room

Spring's goal, like any good framework, has always been to handle the infrastructure so you can focus on your  application code.  Join this session to see how Spring provides a simple programming model to develop applications than can easily be tested and deployed as either a YARN application or a traditional application.   No longer will you need to struggle with 3rd party library build and packaging issues, XML, and how the YARN Appmasters, Clients and Resource Managers all work together.   The magic of Spring Boot, Spring XD, and Spring for Apache Hadoop just make it all work so you can get coding!

CentOS Dojo - Thursday, April 10th
10:30am - 5:00pm, Confluence B

A one day event that brings together people from the CentOS Communities to talk about systems administration, best practises and emerging technologies.
