A DIY Data Lake and Lab

English session - Intermediate

Data have to be sorted and stored before they can be analyzed. Your data sets as mines are big enough to give a hard time to our laptops, but not big enough to require the fanciest big data solutions. Building simple data lakes and labs can help you get what you want without deployment headaches. In this talk, we will see how to build simple data lakes and labs using Ruby, Python, and common PaaS, and IaaS.

How to onboard a junior developer

English session - Beginner

A junior developer will join your team. If nothing is done, they are likely to be unproductive for a long time. You & me have been there too. This is not a great experience, for anybody. Still, great engineers need to be made, and this starts on day one. Based on my experience and on the EURA NOVA onboarding system, I will discuss why onboarding is important, which elements are required, how to plan and do it, and which common pitfalls to avoid.
