Defeating the Janitorial Challenges of Big Data

On February 17, 2017 I gave a presentation to the NodeJS Meetup group in Atlanta  I addressed how an API framework that Headspace Sprockets is using called ActionHero ( can be extended for automating interrelated tasks and for more effective stream processing.  Both of these extensions are extremely useful for the types of ETL and other preparation jobs that must be performed (and that consume the bulk of time) in big data analysis.  

The video of my presentation is available at Recall Act, a wonderful video library of Meetup presentations. (
