Full-Stack High Availability in an Eventually Consistent World

Building high-availability applications is an evolving art. The biggest impediment to high-availability (HA) in recent history has been the database. With the advent of truly Availability and Partition Tolerance databases (the AP from CAP), HA databases are not only possible, but a practical and proven reality.

With that problem solved, this talk with focus on ways to solve availability in the rest of the application stack. We'll show how it is possible to build a resilient stack using both emerging and established technologies, while still allowing for arbitrary failure, ease of management, and recovery.

Spark is an example of an application that is built with HA concurrency and resiliency as fundamental building blocks. We'll talk about how you can use similar techniques like distributed messaging and actors to build applications with similar characteristics.

 

Data Mining Basics

First we'll cover how Netflix uses Collaborative Filters for movie recommendations.

Then how Western Governors University uses Data Classifications to predict who will graduate. And how the financial industry is using Data Prediction to estimate profits.

Finally, a unsupervised learning demo that can identify patterns compumagically!

Understanding Latency: Key Lessons and Tools

 

Full Stack JavaScript

Think JavaScript is just for the browser? More and more organizations are beginning to embrace the efficiencies that come from a homogenous technology stack. This presentation dives into the best practices and patterns for extending JavaScript to the server using Node.

Gabriel Dayley is a Software Architect for the LDS Church, where he's pushed the web as a strong platform for building applications. He is the founder of the Utah Google Developer Group and holds a B.S in Computer Science from Utah Valley University.

Tom Valletta is a Mobile Architect, Open Web Evangelist, and hack that has been developing for the web for fourteen years. His clients range across industries including defense, healthcare, technology, e-commerce, human resources and religion.

 

Understanding Latency: Key Lessons and Tools

Understanding application responsiveness and latency is critical not only for delivering good application behavior but also for maintaining profitability and containing risk. But when measurements present false or misleading information, even the best analysis can lead to wrong operational decisions and poor application experience. This presentation discusses common pitfalls encountered in measuring and characterizing latency, and ways to address them using some recently open sourced tools.

Matt Schuetze is the Director of Product Management at Azul Systems. He is responsible for managing requirements and charting product roadmaps for the Zing, Zing Platform Edition with WebSphere, and Zulu product families. Matt worked through the ranks at software companies Compuware and Micro Focus, from staff developer, to team lead, to development manager, to product manager. Since joining Azul, he contributed heavily to the implementation of the Zulu Enterprise open source offering, including its global launch in January 2014.
