Description

HPCC Systems

LexisNexis Risk Solutions will be hosting the 5th annual HPCC Systems Summit Community Day in Atlanta, GA, Monday October 8 - Tuesday October 9, 2018. The purpose of the Summit is to gather engineers, data scientists and technology professionals to share knowledge and future roadmap plans for the HPCC Systems platform. This event is dedicated to showcase our community and have industry and academia present their HPCC Systems use cases, research projects and share their experience on how they leverage the HPCC Systems platform.

As part of Community Day, we are excited to hold our 3rd annual HPCC Systems Technical Poster Presentations Competition on Monday October 8, showcasing the work of our academia community. The posters will remain on display throughout the October 9 Community Day event. Past years have been a big success and we are thrilled to host the competition again this year!

This year, we are offering two pre-event workshops on October 8 to our external Community Day participants. The morning workshop titled "Data Extraction and Transformation with ECL", is ideal for those wanting to understand the HPCC Systems platform and learn ECL to build powerful data pipelines. The afternoon workshop titled “Real World Data Problems and Easy ECL Solutions” is perfect for users who want to build on their ECL knowledge to solve real world data problems.

The Community Day event on October 9 will be live streamed via the HPCC Systems YouTube channel. The agenda will tentatively run from 8:30am – 5:00pm ET. We will have a fantastic line-up of speakers featuring industry experts and thought leaders and are currently finalizing the agenda. Catch a sneak peek.
