Big Data Learning – Druid working group

Learning a new solution or building an architecture for a specific use case is never easy, especially when you are trying to embark alone on such an endeavour – thus in 2020 started a new way of learning specific big data solutions/use cases: working groups. And with the first working group (centered around Spark Structured Streaming + NLP) on its way to completion in July, we are now opening registration for a new working group – this time centered around Apache Druid: Building live dashboards with Apache Druid + Superset. The working group aims to take place End of July – October and will bring together a team of 5-6 participants that will define the scope, select the data (open data), install the needed components, implement the needed flow. Besides the participants for this group we will have a team of advisors (with experience in Druid and big data in general) that will advise the participants on how to solve different issues that will arise in the project.       

Details of the working group are listed below. If you are interested to participate in this group please register using the form at the bottom of the page. 

What will this working group mean:

A predefined topic: Building live dashboards with Apache Druid + Superset

A group of 5-6 participants and one predefined driver per group – the scope of the driver is (besides being part of the group) to organize the groups and provide the cloud infrastructure needed for installing the studied solution;

5 online meetings every 2 weeks (thus a 10 weeks time window for each working group, we will use Google Hangouts/Zoom). The meetings will take place Monday-Friday, in the interval 6PM – 9PM;

Active participation/contribution from each participant, for example each participant will have to present in at least 2 of the meetings to the rest of the group;

Some study @ home between the sessions;

The fee for participating in these working groups is 100 Euro/participant and will cover the costs with cloud infrastructure and other tools/logistics costs for the group meetings. 

Starting with this group we decided to have a team of advisers (per group) to help us get started and to guide us in finding solutions in case of potential deadlocks/issues. With many thanks for taking upon this challenge:
