7:15 pm: A short presentation on Building Python apps with ATP
7:30 pm: Workshop Starts
9:00 pm: Wrap up

Description:
As a developer, you want to do what you do best…write code. Often times, developers are sidetracked in the cloud setting up infrastructure, configuring networks, and databases, etc. taking valuable time away. Not in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. With a developer ready marketplace and the autonomous database service, you can go from zero to a fully functional python app in 60 mins.

Workshop Details:
This is a hands-on workshop to build a full-stack python application. Whether you are a developer or a DBA writing automation scripts in Python, this lab will be helpful for you. We will provision a python app server and an autonomous transaction processing service in the Oracle cloud and deploy a python app. Oracle cloud accounts will be provided.
Experience a day in the life of Derek McCarthy – a full-stack developer for the fictitious company Alpha Office. Derek has been hired to introduce new best practices to Alpha Office microservices developers. In this workshop, you will take on Derek’s persona to build cloud-based microservices database applications.

You will learn to:
- Setup Cloud Environment
- Load and Access Data
- Build and Test Python REST Service
- Derive insights into customer and service provider data

Workshop Instructors:
Srini Bala is Senior Cloud Solution Engineer for Oracle with 15 years of industry experience in application development and networking.
Pradyumna Kodgi is Senior Cloud Solution Engineer for Oracle with 15 years of industry experience in custom application development and integration.
Daniel Lay is Senior Analytics Consultant for Oracle with 15 years of experience in data technologies and visual effects

Co-hosts:

History

Don V Black, PhD, realized in late 2013 that Orange County (OC) was ready for an ACM Chapter, and he decided to found such a Chapter.

Since five current ACM members in good standing were needed to sign a petition to start a Chapter, in September of 2014, he sent an email to his associates to sign the petition. Jeremy Harrington, Jenny Wang, Nilo Niccolai, Lynn Langit, Rebecca Perry, Daniel Whelan, Ken Bell, Keviin Fowler, Brian McCaleb, Dave Close, Lance Elliot, and Roger Whitney responded.

The following members attended the first lunch meetings held at the old University Club at UCI, and volunteered to serve as the first ACM officers in 2014.

  • Founding Chair: Don V Black, PhD
  • Vice Chair: Lance Elliot. PhD
  • Treasurer: Kevin Fowler
  • Secretary: Rebecca Perry, PhD
  • Communications: Jake Liang, PhD
  • Member-At-Large: Arthur Schwarz
  • University Liaison: Nilo Niccolai, PhD
  • Membership: Daniel Whelan, PhD
  • Programs: Dan Davis
  • Webmaster: Ken Bell
  • Mission Statement: Nilo Niccolai, PhD

A business manager at The UCI Institute for Innovation offered Don Black the use of the facility, which was yet to be built. Don took up the offer, and negotiated a free use of the facility for the GameSIG Showcase and ACM of OC. Don Black and others thought that since the demographics of both organizations included UCI students, they met the I4I criteria for free community support, and would increase visibility for the new UCI Institute for Innovation (I4I). They held on awesome GameSIG Showcase, and proceeded to promote ACM-OC bi-monthly presentations at the UCI I4I.

ACM-OC bi-monthly talks were extremely well received by the membership. At the suggestion of the Membership Chair, Daniel Whelan, Don Black followed the example of the San Francisco ACM Chapter, and added ACM-OC as one of his MeetUp groups.

Further details of this can be found at the ACM-OC archived website.
