PyData September Meetup: Big(ish) Data; Scaling Up Customer-facing Logs

September 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

201 S. Division, Suite 500

Join us for a PyData Ann Arbor Meetup on Thursday, September 14th, at 6 PM, hosted by TD Ameritrade and MIDAS.

In a security product used to secure access to mission-critical applications, logging and auditing is incredibly important.  Recently, Duo Security transitioned its authentication log storage from MySQL to Elasticsearch.  In this talk, Bryan Witherspoon will talk about life before the transition, some of the reasons why they chose to make the transition, what went into the design process, the challenges they faced along the way, and the benefits they gained from the transition.

As an engineer on Duo Security’s Data Engineering team, Bryan Witherspoon designs and develops solutions to improve the usability and scale of data within Duo’s products and services.  He occasionally tweets @uoodsq.

PyData Ann Arbor is a group for amateurs, academics, and professionals currently exploring various data ecosystems. Specifically, we seek to engage with others around analysis, visualization, and management. We are primarily focused on how Python data tools can be used in innovative ways but also maintain a healthy interest in leveraging tools based in other languages such as R, Java/Scala, Rust, and Julia.

PyData Ann Arbor strives to be a welcoming and fully inclusive group and we observe the PyData Code of Conduct. PyData is organized by NumFOCUS.org, a 501(c)3 non-profit in the United States.
