  • 14H30: Hands-on Workshops:
    • Workshop 1: Kafka (Linkare) – In this session we make an introduction to kafka with a demonstration of the message processing model in a high availability environment appropriate to “big data” cases. The question will also be addressed: how can we get the best out of this solution? Apache Kafka presents itself as an open source stream-processing platform capable of handling real-time message feeds, suitable for big data scenarios.
    • Workshop 2: Elastic (Syone) – Get to know and learn how to use the leading Open Source solution in data research, analysis and treatment, which makes it possible to centrally address several use cases, allowing you to discover the expected and uncover the unexpected.
    • Workshop 3: Sharing Open Data on data.gov.pt ( AMA) – In this workshop we will show that it is possible to share data in a few minutes on data.gov.pt, and what are the best practices to adopt when contributing with new data sets, including the ideal formats for publication. This workshop will be based on real practical examples of sharing and reusing data sets, adapted to various user profiles, with or without programming experience.

Please note that attendance to the workshops is limited to 20 persons. Workshops are scheduled simultaneously.
