Attend the 6 Feb @Cloudera Federal Forum: For the Analyst, Data Scientist, #BigData Technologist in DC

By Bob Gourley

The agenda for the 3rd Annual Cloudera Federal Forum (6 Feb 2014, Hanover MD) has firmed up and will no doubt lead to an incredible event. This will be a great venue for thought leaders from the federal government, great tech firms and very talented integrator firms.

The speakers are a world-class-best mix of data and analysis practitioners, and from what I can tell the attendees will be the real action-oriented professionals from government really making things happen in Big Data analysis. This will be the perfect place to share lessons learned, exchange use-cases, meet others working similar challenges, and help advance the state of analytics in the government space.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
