Philly ETE 2015 – Jay Kreps – Putting Apache Kafka to Use

I will discuss the experience at LinkedIn and elsewhere moving from batch-oriented ETL to real-time streams using Apache Kafka. I’ll talk about how the design and implementation of Kafka was driven by this goal of acting as a real-time platform for event data.

Philly ETE 2015 – Helena Edelson – Streaming Big Data with Spark, Spark Streaming, Kafka, Cassandra and Akka

This talk presents Apache Spark, Spark Streaming, Apache Kafka, Apache Cassandra and Akka as supporting Lambda architecture in the context of a fault tolerant, streaming big data pipeline. We will walk through the Fault Tolerance story with these technologies to build applications, and how to easily implement and integrate them in a Scala Akka application for real-time delivery of meaning at high velocity, in highly distributed and concurrent environments.
