Oops I Did it Again – Adapting a pop music identifier to find syndicated content in talk radio - Allison King - Cortico
At Cortico, we are making talk radio searchable in order to surface local voices and the range of issues and opinions being discussed across the country. With that comes a host of problems, including lots of duplicate content ranging from syndicated shows to repeated commercials.
This talk will go through how we set up an ephemeral Spark cluster in Kubernetes to automatically detect duplicate content in roughly 4000 hours of audio collected per day from nearly 200 radio stations. From this data, we can begin to map out the space of American talk radio.
Our Journey from Heroku to Kubernetes - Josh Branham - Salsify
At Salsify, we are building a multi-tenant SAAS platform to allow brand manufacturers to create the product experiences consumers demand. We needed to look at alternatives to our existing hosting platform, Heroku, that would give us more control, flexibility, and room to rapidly scale with our team and customer base.
