Big Data and APIs for PHP Developers

Big Data creates problems and opportunities that do not exist when dealing with smaller datasets. You will learn how to scale, utilize, and visualize Big Data as well as create and integrate Big Data related APIs. We will talk about how to scale your data, expose your data through APIs, integrate existing data from the data marketplace, and communicate your data through visualization.You will find out what techniques and strategies work best when working with Big Data. Many developers have learned how to scale their systems for high levels of concurrency. However, scaling for Big Data has its own unique challenges. Sometimes strategies that would make no sense for smaller systems work great when dealing with larger datasets. This Workshop is geared towards PHP developers, but all are welcome.
