Straight after the HPCC Systems Community Day Summit last October, I headed over to Kennesaw State University, College of Computing and Software Engineering with a group of HPCC Systems colleagues, for the launch of their first hackathon. It was our first hackathon too, so we were excited to meet the students and get started.

Our links and collaborations with a variety of academic institutions got us thinking how great it would be to invite students working on HPCC Systems related projects to showcase their work in the form of a poster presentation.

When working alongside a development team every day like I do, there is really very little mystique about how the team functions, communicates or works towards producing new releases. But it strikes me that those who primarily see the end result, may be curious about what happens behind the scenes.

As soon as I hear the phrase ‘this release includes a number of performance improvements’, my curiosity always gets the better of me leading me to ask questions such as, what exactly does this mean, where will users see these improvements and how do we know the system is performing better than before?

If you have attended Community Day at one of our HPCC Systems engineering summits, you will have noticed a significant number of presentations from academic institutions. This is no coincidence.

We had a number of great proposals again this year from students eager to join the HPCC Systems Summer Intern Program. This year, five students have joined our platform team and are already working on their chosen projects, which include machine learning algorithms and enhancements to the HPCC Systems platform itself.

Wherever you look these days, analysts are providing visual representations of the data they mine to help businesses make decisions. Since data is our business, this is something we have been doing for some time now, using the visualization capabilities built in to HPCC Systems®.

One of the many improvements coming your way this year is a complete restructuring of the HPCC Systems Machine Learning Library.
