Unlocking insights from Big Data
Every day we’re producing and consuming an ever increasing amount of
data. Data we consciously produce ourselves is massive, however the
machine data produced automatically by business systems, industrial
processes, appliances, telemetry and literally any digital process is
inconceivably vast. Through this session Matt will discuss why teasing
out real time insights from previously undervalued machine data sources
such as log files and wire data matters and how we can turn the noise
into actionable answers. Matt will also introduce Splunk as a platform
which can manage the entire process from data acquisition through to
presentation and automation. Using some common machine data sources he
will take you through the journey from messy unstructured data to clear
insights where we can ask any question using an easy Search Processing
Language and use these insights to drive Dashboards and Alerts, automate
processes, and feed machine learning algorithms.
*Matt Moore* is a Splunk Sales engineer and avid data wrangler working
with machine data spanning everything from security and application
development through to IOT and industrial data. Prior to working with
Splunk Matt spent his days working with telephony and network solutions
wishing there was a way to understand his environment without using
telnet and notepad++
In his spare time Matt enjoys dabbling with crypto currencies and
occasionally terrifies flying instructors at Tyab airport. Matt had
previously experimented with living aboard and restoring an old steel
yacht, but after experiencing the reality of cold showers and early
mornings, now appreciates living on land with central heating and broadband.
An Introduction to Packaging
The most convenient way to pass around software on Linux systems is as a
package. Understanding what's in them and how to quickly build one is
really useful to move work between systems easily. Andrew will start
with a very simple package and build up to more complex packages based
around the Debian package format that he is most familiar with. This is
a huge topic so there is only time go over the major parts and he will
be taking directions from the audience as to what aspects people most
interested in learning about.
*Andrew Worsley* is an embedded software engineer with 30+ years of
programming experience. He has worked in a wide variety of areas from
kernel drivers, compilers to networking equipment, AI programming
languages and image processing systems such as Kodak's Image Magic.
This included a variety of low level coding such writing ?-code for
Network processors to porting kernels to new Intel and ARM based
hardware. These days he is trying to keep bugs out of very high speed
(100Gbit/s) encryption systems that are manufactured in Victoria and
sold around the world.
Many of us like to go for dinner nearby after the meeting, typically at
Brunetti's or Trotters Bistro in Lygon St. Please let us know if you'd
like to join us!
Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
