Time Series Meetup: The Virtual Edition

We’re a diverse bunch who have one thing in common: we want developer life to be happy and that means building better tools and understanding new concepts.
Time Series Meetup: The Virtual Edition

What are time series meetups?

Time series meetups are events for everyone who is passionate or curious about time series data and how it can be used.

Interested in attending?

Time series data is gaining momentum and we’re set on exploring and pushing its boundaries by learning from each other’s experiences. We’re like NASA for time series but nobody has to sit on top of jet fuel.

Check out the next Virtual meetups below to find a time perfect for you. These sessions will be recorded and posted to our YouTube page.

Talk Title: Interactive Maps in 30 Lines of Code

Marko Letic | Tech Speaker at Mozilla, Lead Front-End Engineer AVA
Abstract

Interactive maps are a great way to represent your data, and today more than ever, it’s important to properly and effectively visualize geographic information to your users. Although projects like Google maps or MapBox provide great out-of-the-box solutions, sometimes you might want to avoid the hassle that comes from using these tools, especially if you are concerned about pricing due to high volume of traffic on your websites.

In this talk, I will explain how you can create your own SVG maps that are lightweight, easy to use, and very customizable. Using live examples, you will see step-by-step how to create a simple world map, and how you can style different parts of the map based on certain criteria using just CSS. All of that in just 30 lines of code!

Note: Basic knowledge of JS, HTML, and CSS is good to have for better understanding.

Talk Title: Introducing ClickHouse — the Fastest Data Warehouse You've Never Heard Of

Robert Hodges | CEO of Altinity
Abstract

The market for scalable SQL data warehouses is dominated by proprietary products. ClickHouse is one of the first open source projects to give those products a run for their money. ClickHouse scales to hundreds of nodes with ingest measured in millions of events per second. The user community includes CloudFlare, Cisco, and numerous financial services companies. This talk briefly recounts the history of ClickHouse, starting with its origins at Yandex, then dives into popular features. These include column storage with efficient data encoding and compression, vectorized query execution, sharding and replication, and materialized views. We will end with a short survey of popular use cases and questions.

Talk 1: Prophet for Forecasts with InfluxDB

Anais Dotis-Georgiou | Developer Advocate, InfluxData
Abstract

Data collection is only half of the battle. The other half is being able to easily perform data analysis. FB Prophet aims to make time series forecasting simple and fast. We’ll learn how to make a univariate time series prediction with Prophet and InfluxDB.

Talk 2: How to Grow Peppers Using InfluxDB

Aleksandr Tavgen | Software Architect, Playtech
About

Alex is a Software Architect at Playtech. His main points of interest are data science and machine learning, distributed systems, graph computations and domain design. Alex finds it hard to define where he is from, as he says: “I am some kind of nomad, digital nomad. I am from Tallinn, but lived in Germany, Sweden and the UK. I have been in in IT development for more than 17 years, but actually everything had begun much earlier. My classmate and I wrote our first game for Soviet computer when we were 13 — it was written on Basic. A spaceship bombed tanks while tanks tried to hit the spaceship.” Having shifted from Developer to DevOps Engineer, Alex has always been interested in technology, development, math and computer science and has worked in diverse fields at all levels of abstraction, from micro controllers to high-level declarative programming and all points in between.
