QCon is a practitioner-driven conference designed for technical team leads, architects, and project managers who influence software innovation in their teams.

Presentation: "A Research Agenda and Vision for Big Data at NASA"

Track: Big Data Architectures - handling too big, too fast or too versatile data / Time: Friday 15:40 - 16:30 / Location: Churchill Auditorium

I discuss four critical areas emerging in the context of NASA projects in radio astronomy; in snow hydrology and regional climate modeling; climate science, and in intelligence activities that together we must significantly advance to deal with the data deluge across NASA and government agencies.

Intelligent data movement; rapid science algorithm integration; cloud computing for processing and storage; and open source are at the heart of this movement.

Chris Mattmann

Biography: Chris Mattmann

Chris Mattmann has a wealth of experience in software design, and in the construction of large-scale data-intensive systems. His work has infected a broad set of communities, ranging from helping NASA unlock data from its next generation of earth science system satellites, to assisting graduate students at the University of Southern California (his Alma mater) in the study of software architecture, all the way to helping industry and open source as a member and Director at the Apache Software Foundation. When he's not busy being busy, he's spending time with his lovely wife and son braving the mean streets of Southern California.
