It's that time of year again! The HPCC Systems Intern Program is well underway. In 2021, we have welcomed 12 students on to the program to complete a range of projects contributing to our open source platform and machine learning library. Now that the students are well into their project tasks, now is a good time to share progress made so far.
Our newest release HPCC Systems 8.2.0 Gold, contains a number of improvements and features that mean our Cloud Native Platform is now ready to be tested and used in production environments. Find out more about the new features and enhancements now available for both our Cloud Native and Bare Metal Platform users.
The method of defining storage on our Cloud Native platform has been rationalized and simplified in HPCC Systems 8.2.0. This blog, by Gavin Halliday, takes you through the new way storage is defined in the values.yaml file, providing some examples of how it can be used.
June 15, 2021 marks the 10 year anniversary of HPCC Systems in the open source community. To commemorate this milestone achievement, I sit down with Vijay Raghavan, EVP & CTO, LexisNexis Risk Solutions Group in the latest episode of the 10 year anniversary podcast series.
Bahar Fardanian is a key ambassador for the HPCC Systems Open Source Project. Bahar's work is an inspiration to all who experience her presentations, workshops and Hackathon challenges, in particular students looking to become software engineers or data scientists. Find out about her latest venture, which involves delivering a big data analytics course to students at Kennesaw State University.
The aim of the March Kennesaw State University College of Computing and Software Engineering Hackathon event, was to demonstrate to students how big data analytics may be used for social good to solve problems in society that make a real difference in people's lives. HPCC Systems provided students with the opportunity to learn more about The ADAM Program and take a look at missing children trends.
In 2020, we accepted a CodeDay student, Jefferson Mao, on to the HPCC Systems Intern Program. He will be rejoining the program in 2021 along with two other CodeDay participants, Alexander Parra and Eleanor Carl. Find out more about their involvement with CodeDay and their intern projects, which range from using Machine Learning, our Cloud Native platform and the HPCC Systems Covid-19 Tracker.
LexisNexis Risk Solutions have been a sponsor of CodeDay since 2014. This program was started to provide students with an opportunity to explore careers in computer science and to introduce them to coding, The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that the last few events have taken place completely virtually, including the latest CodeDay, which was was held at the end of February 2021.
