1. AWS Big Data Demystified – Omid Vahdaty (90 Minutes)

A while ago I entered the challenging world of Big Data. As an engineer, at first, I was not so impressed with this field. As time went by, I realized more and more. The technological challenges in this area are too great to master by one person.
Consequently, I created a meetup detailing all the challenges of Big Data, especially in the world of cloud. I am using AWS infrastructure to answer the basic questions of anyone starting their way in the big data world:
• How to transform data (TXT, CSV, TSV, JSON) into Parquet, ORC…
• Which technology should we use to model the data? EMR? Athena? Redshift? Spectrum? Glue? Spark? SparkSQL?
• How to handle streaming?
• How to manage costs?
• Performance tips?
• Security tips?
• Cloud best practices tips?
