Serverless MapReduce with .NET

8th March 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from LDNUG March 2018 - Code Craft, MapReduce and WSL

"Big data" and MapReduce can often appear to be scary models that only those with Linux & Java skills, and a large budget for a server cluster, can fully understand, let alone leverage. This needn't be the case!

Do you want to process huge amounts of data (e.g. server logs) in a scalable & parallel fashion, while using your favourite tool set? Do you want to ask some questions of an interesting data set, but you feel limited to RDMS & NoSQL? Do you feel that, just because .NET is your language of choice, that you are a second-class (programming) citizen when it comes to available MapReduce tools?

In this talk Chris will discuss the pros and cons of leveraging the MapReduce programming model in a serverless cloud environment with .NET, and show a real world example -- from architecture right down to the code.

There'll be:

  • an introduction to MapReduce (no prior knowledge on big data or MapReduce is required)

  • a discussion on what serverless really means, and an introduction to the options available

  • a worked example of serverless MapReduce with .NET, aiming to answer real questions with real data.
