Join us for our upcoming meetup on Thursday, February 2 at Verve. Doors open at 6pm, and we'll have the talk start around 6:30pm.
Geospatial Data Analytics at scale with Elasticsearch and Apache Spark
This meetup will provide instruction for getting up and running with Elasticsearch and Apache Spark for big data analysis and visualization.
We will cover:
• Building an optimized Elasticsearch cluster for big data and massive aggregations
• Getting up and Running with Apache Spark and Zeppelin on Amazon EMR. We will cover the es-hadoop package for transporting data
• New Features in Elasticsearch 5.0
Jonathan Spooner is the Head of Innovation at Verve and has been leveraging Elasticsearch since version 1.0. Most recently when Verve couldn’t find a scalable and cost effective geospatial mapping solution they looked to their innovation team to prototype a solution. The teams prototype leveraged Elasticsearch, Apache Spark, Ruby on Rails and Inferno.js. After finding value in the prototype Verve founded a new engineering department dedicated to data visualization.
Chris Miller is a Sr. Software engineer at Verve with a background ranging from startups, small businesses to large enterprises. He has been focused on building scalable web applications and reactive interfaces. Leveraging Elasticsearch along with Spark to ingest, aggregate and query large sets of data allows him to visualize the results however he wishes. In his spare time, Chris has taken to tinkering with his Raspberry Pi and Alexa.
