Agenda:

Flavio Villanustre, VP Technology, LexisNexis - Welcome

1. Joselito (Joey) Chua , PhD, Manager Software Engineer, Optimal Decisions Group Prescriptive Analytics - a Software Engineering Perspective

This talk presents an overview of prescriptive techniques involving simulation and optimisation, the engineering challenges in building prescriptive tools, and HPCC solutions for those challenges. 

2. Jill Luber, Senior Architect, LexisNexis Risk Solutions - Migrating an ECL code repository into Git, Part II 

This session will take a quick look at a migration plan that moved ECL production code, production processes and developers out of MySQL/SVN and into a Git code management culture.  This includes migrating both ROXIE and Thor processes to use Git branches across multiple HPCC Systems environments, all while continuing production data builds and releases.

3. Michael Gardner, Software Engineer II, LexisNexis Risk Solutions - HPCC Systems Platform: Java APIs and tools

This presentation will be in regards to the Java API and tools released by the HPCC Systems Platform team.  These projects include wsclient, rdf2hpcc, clienttools, and jdbc.  These open source projects, which can be found in the hpcc-systems github repositories, are designed to allow downstream developers a consistent means by which to interface with the HPCC Systems Platform,  and to facilitate the workflow of common tasks a downstream developer might be concerned with. 

4. Bob Foreman, Senior Software Engineer, HPCC Systems, LexisNexis Risk Solutions - In Search of the Lost Tutorial – the best ECL lesson you have never seen. 

In this presentation, Bob will explore David Bayliss’ ECL Bible Tutorial, with particular focus on the GRAPH function and building the inverted index for the ROXIE search.
