 Sessions

Managing Developers

Most modern day workers have a very negative view on middle or front line managers. They see managers as waste and a constant source of interruptions to their day. My contention is exactly the opposite. A "Good" manager should make their developers more productive. Not by standing over their shoulder and making sure they are working, but by standing behind them and keeping everyone else off their backs. In this session I will teach you the top attributes of a really good manager and how to implement them for your team. I will show you how to improve the productivity and satisfaction of your team members with 10 straightforward techniques.

Demystifying Big Data

Big Data is here to stay. And with it comes a deluge of new buzz words and acronyms. Phrases like "NoSQL", "Document Database", "Velocity, Volume, and Variety", "Hadoop", and "Map Reduce" are now commonplace. To make matters worse, depending on who you talk to, the definitions of these phrases are slightly different. Jon will walk through what big data really means and pull back the curtain on all the buzzwords surrounding it. Jon will explain the origins of NoSQL, what the various NoSQL databases are, and when each would be used. Jon walks you through the concept of MapReduce and how this tool will allow manipulation and aggregation of massive amounts of data in your enterprise. Jon will help you understand what all of these various new technologies really are and how they could impact you and your business. Most importantly, Jon will give you the information you need to make informed decisions about when and where these tools should be used in your enterprise.
