Data Engineering with Databricks on Google Cloud
Doug Leal -
Director of Consulting (Data & Analytics) at CGI

Databricks, based on Apache Spark, is a fast, easy-to-use, and scalable data platform. With Databricks on Google Cloud, you can build open, flexible data lakes integrated with BigQuery and Looker. In this session, you will learn about Spark and Databricks, what problems it solves, and how Databricks work on Google Cloud. This isn't another theoretical presentation; this session will include hands-on demonstrations of loading, transforming, and visually presenting data with Databricks.

SQL, Databases, and Data
Andy Warren -
DBA in the Orlando area and the current President of the non-profit SQLOrlando.

Transactional databases have been around for a long time and arguably are still king of the hill for many use cases. There are other times when the scale or type of data may require a different approach, from time series to key value to file-based systems when you need super scale. Most of us will be familiar with one or two of those and they will be our go to solution, in part because we get hired because we know them and in part because we know and trust them. That allows us to focus and boxes us in, an interesting paradox to be sure! But underlying it all is data, the thing that drives businesses and applications and security breaches. We often get caught up in platforms and apis and patterns and all the rest - important to be sure, but in doing so we often treat data as this cursory problem to be solved, almost an annoyance. The goal of this presentation is to challenge you to both learn more about what you know related to data and to look outside your favorite tools for ideas and approaches that maybe solve some problems in a more interesting way. I also hope to inspire you to think and care more about the data and how you use it, ranging from how you can add more value to your application/business and the ethics of how we acquire and use it.
