DuckDB and Polars - my laptop is faster than your data warehouse by Przemek Maciołek

It's a great time to work with data. We not only have some big mature products available but also some exciting new projects, which allow us to process large volumes of data very efficiently. Among them, DuckDB and Polars standout. In his talk, Przemek will describe what these are, how they compare and if they can replace your Pandas, Snowlake or Databricks setup. A demonstration of running heavy analytics, fully in the web browser will follow up.

Kubernetes Journey: From Microservices to Batch Processing (Big Data, ML) Platform by Karol Gongola

Originally designed for microservice architectures, Kubernetes has evolved into a robust platform which can be also used for batch processing like Big Data or ML workloads. This shift raises pivotal questions: Should Kubernetes be leveraged as a universal resource manager for various workloads? What considerations are essential for optimising batch processing on Kubernetes? This presentation will explore these questions, delving into crucial factors for running batch jobs efficiently and showcasing essential tools that facilitate this transition.
