HPCC is the big data analysis tool from LexisNexis. They have proprietary add-ons as well. They've got a meetup and have spoken at local users' groups. I don't see any upcoming meetups, but keep an eye on them.

This was the note from Trish, their program manager:

Hello, I am the Program Manager for the HPCC Systems open source project at LexisNexis. HPCC Systems (www.hpccsystems.com) from LexisNexis Risk Solutions offers a proven, data-intensive supercomputing platform designed for the enterprise to process and solve Big Data analytical problems. As an alternative to legacy technology, HPCC Systems offers a consistent data-centric programming language, two processing platforms and a single, complete end-to-end architecture for efficient processing. And it is open source!  ... I'm happy to provide whitepapers, articles or any other information needed.

    October 5-8, 2020 - General Talks, Breakout Sessions, Poster Displays, Expo and Workshops

    For the first time ever, we're bringing the 7th annual HPCC Systems Community Day Summit to you virtually this October. Our worldwide virtual event will provide a high quality workshop training opportunity, as well as presentations covering a wide variety of topics and technical posters from students working on HPCC Systems related projects. The purpose of the Summit is to gather engineers, data scientists and technology professionals to share knowledge and future roadmap plans for the HPCC Systems platform. This event is dedicated to showcase our community and have industry and academia present their HPCC Systems use cases, research projects and share their experience on how they leverage the HPCC Systems platform.

    We are planning a great lineup of speakers! View the event flyer for the agenda and workshop sessions: https://d2wulyp08c6nj...

    Remote ECL Workshops - 9am - 10am ET, October 6 - 9
    A three hour workshop, Mastering the Relational, ROXIE and Regressive Realms with ECL, is for Community Virtual Summit participants who want to expand their knowledge of the HPCC Systems platform and ECL in three different phases. The workshop will take students through mastering relational queries, building an index in ROXIE using nested child datasets, writing a ROXIE service for data delivery, and wrapping up with an introduction to Machine Learning using a Learning Trees Regression Model. The workshop will be split into three distinct one-hour remote sessions.

    Phase 1 - The first hour unleashes the power of ECL with Relational Datasets, and discusses the advantages of using them.

    Phase 2 - The second hour builds on what we started in Phase 1 and moves forward by delivering this data to ROXIE. We discuss and demonstrate the best practices of building indexed datasets and powerful data queries.

    Phase 3 - The final hour dives into a practical introduction to Machine Learning using ECL and Learning Trees bundle, and demonstrates how to build a Regressive (Quantitative) Model using a Property Price Predictor.

    Code examples and lesson materials will be included. Attendees can attend any one-hour session or the whole workshop occurring 9am - 10am ET on Tuesday October 6, Wednesday October 7, and Thursday October 8. We will also offer this same workshop taught in Portuguese following the same format occurring on the same days and times.

    Prerequisites: This workshop assumes that the attendee have a basic understanding of HPCC Systems and ECL. We recommend that you complete our online Introduction to ECL Courses (Part 1 and 2) before attending: https://learn.lexisne...

    Poster Presentations Competition
    The 5th annual poster presentations competition will be held as part of the Community Virtual Summit, showcasing the work of our academia community on how students leveraged the HPCC Systems platform. For the first time, we will have a Community Choice Award category where our community virtual event attendees can participate in the voting of their favorite poster. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded as part of the Community Recognition ceremony during the main agenda.

    Virtual Interactive Expo
    The Interactive Expo will return where attendees can engage with our HPCC Systems experts, seek advice and guidance on new features and platform infrastructure and interact online with our exhibitors.

    Key Dates
    Community Day: October 5, 2020, 9am - 3pm ET
    ECL Workshops: October 6-8, 2020, 9am - 10am ET
