Probing the Mystery’s of Saturn’s E-Ring with PostgreSQL

16th January 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from LDNUG: January 2018 with Rob Conery and Heather Downing

The story is in the data, you just need to know where to look!

In this talk, Rob Conery discusses the work done by his fictional aerospace startup, Red:4, to prepare for mankind's return to Saturn in 2020. They built a historical data set using various instrument data from Cassini, in particular the data collected from the mysterious moon, Enceladus. Rob will discuss flyby speed calculation, chemistry analysis and, in brief detail, the machine learning system they plan to send with the next probe, SELFI. Along the way he’ll discuss SQL, database design, and ethics when it comes to analyzing and creating predictive data.

Rob Conery is the co–founder of Tekpub.com, an online video learning resource for developers of all shapes and sizes. He also is... one of the annoying voices you hear on This Developer's Life – a podcast he does with Scott Hanselman. He has a number of Open Source projects, including Massive (the first MicroORM), SubSonic – an ActiveRecord–y clone, Manatee (migrations with JSON), Sugar – a set of helper libraries, and a few others. He worked on the ASP.NET team for a short while helping to promote application building with ASP.NET MVC. Prior to that he was an independent consultant, sleazy dot–com entrepreneur and data–mining wonk. He lives in Hawaii with his two shiney daughters and wonderfully beautiful, patient wife.
