PANEL: Multi-Device Development: Building for Everything
What are the strategies, difficulties, and opportunities in building my app for a variety of smart phones, tablets, or TV's / screens? Each platform may have its own audience demographic, native coding language, even core functionality. Is "building for everything" a strategy best left to Fortune 500's, or can certain types of apps build and launch across multiple devices within a feasible turnaround time?

TALK: Pattern: An Open Source Project for Creating Complex Machine Learning Applications
Cascading Pattern is an open source project that takes models trained in popular analytics frameworks, such as SAS, Microstrategy, SQL Server, etc., and runs them at scale on Apache Hadoop. With Pattern, developers can use a Java API to create complex machine learning applications, such as recommenders or fraud detection. Pattern effectively lowers the barrier of adoption to Apache Hadoop for developers because developers can use existing skill sets to immediately begin building these complex applications.

This machine-learning library works by translating PMML – an established XML standard for predictive model markup – into data workflows based on the Cascading API in Java. PMML models can be run in a pre-defined JAR file with no coding required. PMML can also be combined with other flows based on ANSI SQL (Cascading Lingual), Scala (Scalding), Clojure (Cascalog), etc. Multiple companies have collaborated to implement parallelized algorithms: Random Forest, Logistic Regression, K-Means, Hierarchical Clustering, etc. Benefits include greatly reduced development costs and less licensing issues at scale – while leveraging a combination of Apache Hadoop clusters, existing intellectual property in predictive models, and the core competencies of analytics staff.

In this presentation, Concurrent, Inc.’s Alexis Roos, will provide sample code that will show applications using predictive models built in SAS and R, such as anti-fraud classifiers. Additionally, Alexis will compare variations of models for enterprise-class customer experiments.

TALK: Deciphering NoSQL: How To Select The Right NoSQL Database For Your Needs
There are currently over 150 databases that can be categorized as fitting into the NoSQL, or Not Only SQL realm and the number seems to be increasing. They include: column or column family stores; document stores; key-value or tuple stores; object databases; graph databases; XML and RDF databases; multi-dimensional and scientific databases; and multi-model databases. They may be embedded, distributed, grid or cloud enabled and support non-traditional transaction modes and parallel processing environments, such as Hadoop. Most of them have been designed with very specific goals in mind, which tends to limit their applicability to particular problem sets.

The speaker, who has been working with alternatives to traditional or mainstream database technologies for almost three decades and was one of the founders of Objectivity, Inc., will first provide a brief overview of the main NoSQL database technologies. He will then illustrate typical use cases with examples from all of the above domains before setting out a framework for determining which traditional and/or NoSQL technologies should be used for a particular purpose.

The session will be vendor neutral. The intended audience members should be technical, with an interest in understanding the issues involved in selecting one or more NoSQL solutions to suit their needs.

TALK: Real-time Analytics with Hadoop, NoSQL and Storm
From financial services, to digital advertising, gaming and retail, companies are pushing to grow revenue by interacting with consumers in real-time based on a 360-degree picture of what they care about, where they are, and what they are doing now. For growing numbers of these businesses, this means developing applications that combine the historical analysis provided by Hadoop with real-time analysis through Storm and within NoSQL databases, themselves. 

In this technical workshop, Aerospike Founder and CTO Brian Bulkowski will examine what it takes to successfully deliver interactive applications based on real-time analysis using a combination of Hadoop, Storm and NoSQL. Key topics will include:
• The respective roles that Hadoop, Storm and NoSQL databases play in real-time analysis.
• Development considerations in choosing which technology to use in areas where their capabilities overlap.
• Strategies for addressing the diverse data types required for providing a complete view of the customers.
• Approaches to managing large data types to ensure reliable real-time responses.
• Other design challenges and how developers have successfully addressed them in real-time applications that are running today.

Throughout the discussion, Brian will use live software demonstrations to illustrate the development considerations and approaches reviewed in this workshop.

Famo.us enables application developers to build beautiful native speed based apps and games in HTML5 that take advantage of famo.us' 3D rendering, 3D physics, multi-screen and gesture engines. Designers can access the motion via the physics engine without coding, application developers can build quickly using app templates and widgets without worrying about performance and platform engineers can build their own primitives from scratch with direct source code access to the full power of the famo.us engines.

Famo,us has been under development for more than two and a half years and so far only Hardware vendors have seen it in action. At the conference, Steve Newcomb is going to show us famo.us for the first time live. He's going to be showing us 20 famo.us demos. at the full beta launch, each of these demos will be posted on CodePen with an attached tutorial, DOCO file and unobfuscated app and core source code. Demos will include a wide variety of things built in famo.us including generative art, apps, games, widgets and tons of physics based interfaces. Demos include 3D generative DOM controlled by music, modifying physics engine based animations in an app live, a Leap Motion app built in famo.us and a walkthrough of a famo.us Tutorial - building the Twitter iPhone app demo.

We will describe the philosophy and architecture of Famo.us, an open source, pure JavaScript framework soon to be released to the public. Famo.us renders WebKit-based experiences which even exceed natively-developed UI using its innovative rendering and physics engines. 

Building consumer-quality applications in HTML5 has traditionally been about getting the vast benefits of web technology while sacrificing something major: beautiful, responsive UI. Why do web-based applications always fail to win awards from designers, or devotion from users? The reason: We've been rendering web applications like they were web documents. This new approach produces applications like you've never seen, until today.

Open Talk: Reducing Testing Times and Broken Builds
Engineers love building and architecting great products. But many times, automated tests are performed and written in haphazard fashions. This leads to lengthy testing times, brittle test code, and increased time to market.  In this talk, we'll chat about different ways to reduce testing time, prevent broken builds, and get happier devs.

TALK: Using Docker and Containers for Development and Deployment Best Practices
Linux Containers (LXC in short) are lightweight virtual machines. The concept has been available for many years (with Solaris Zones, FreeBSD Jails, Linux VServer and OpenVZ), but the recent rise of public and private Platform-as-a-Service, as well as the need for faster, cheaper, more resource-efficient deployment systems, have brought containers under a new spotlight.

This is why dotCloud decided to release Docker, the container engine powering the dotCloud PaaS, as an Open Source project. Docker made it ridiculously easy to author, deploy, share, and manage Linux Containers. It aquired a considerable traction in the devops community, and bloomed a rich ecosystem of third-party projects based on Docker or integrating with it.

Our talk will explain why this is highly relevant for devs and ops, and how they can use Docker to address dependency management, repeatability, testing, and scalability. Containers and Docker itself being framework- and language-agnostic, the audience does not need any kind of specific prior knowledge.

ElasticBox Workshop: DevOps Simplified
Imagine a world where application development and management is a seamless process...that world is ElasticBox. (1) As a developer, you don’t have to spend time managing infrastructure — instead, focus entirely on your application. (2) DevOps processes are no longer manual, time-consuming, repetitive, or error prone — everything is available fully configured as a service. (3) You don’t need to use a scripting language to define how an application is deployed — use readily available Boxes that come with scripts designed to install, configure, start, and stop your application in sequence. It’s all automated for you.

Full Stack Development is more than a job title at today's hottest tech companies, it is also a philosophy of managing technology. Full stack development means understanding each technology in the context of every layer of the stack. What are the essential skills and methodologies of a full stack developer? Is it necessary that a full stack developer become an expert in at least one core language - or can a 'jack of all trades' succeed in a tech team? How does the emergence of a "full stack developer" role change the team dynamic of product creation?
