Global Summit 2017

Experience Lab

Bring your laptop to the Experience Lab and engage with our technologies in a whole new way!

Throughout the Summit, we will offer “experiences” focusing on the newest of our new technologies. Each experience will start with a brief introduction, outlining a particular task. Then you will be set free to complete the task, using one or more of our new technologies as you do so. Each experience should take about 45 minutes to complete. Sales engineers and other experts will be on hand to offer advice and assistance.

The Experience Lab is located in the Developer Zone. Space in the Experience Lab is limited and sign-up will be available when the full session schedule is available soon. Experiences will be repeated to allow flexibility in scheduling.


Build Your Own Cloud
Monday, 1:30 PM – 2:15 PM
Tuesday, 4:00 PM – 4:45 PM
Wednesday, 9:00 AM – 9:45 AM
Increasingly, application developers are taking advantage of the scalability and flexibility of deploying in the cloud. This experience focuses on the process of quickly defining and creating a multi-node infrastructure in a top IaaS provider. Using InterSystems’ new cloud provisioning tool, learners will provision a multi-node infrastructure, connect to the new instances, and run commands. Then (because often there isn’t a permanent need for resources) they will un-provision all of the instances.

Hands-On With Spark
Monday, 2:30 PM – 3:15 PM
Tuesday, 3:00 PM – 3:45 PM
Wednesday, 10:00 AM – 10:45 AM
Apache Spark is an open-source, cluster-computing framework that is gaining popularity for analytics, particularly predictive analytics and machine learning. This experience allows learners to use InterSystems’ connector for Apache Spark to analyze data in a multi-node sharded architecture. Through hands-on exercises, they will analyze data using a Zeppelin notebook, load additional data, and see how their data is incorporated in the analytics.

Build Your Own SMART on FHIR Application
Monday, 3:30 PM – 4:15 PM
Tuesday, 2:00 PM – 2:45 PM
Wednesday, 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM
SMART on FHIR is an application framework that facilitates the portability of 3rd party solutions between vendors and systems. It accomplishes this by defining authorization, user, and patient context as well as a FHIR as the common data model and API. In this experience, learners will use InterSystems’ development tools to rapidly create a SMART on FHIR web application that leverages the power and scalability of the HealthShare Information Exchange.
