My core background is computer science, and my driving ethos is simplicity, open standards & community collaboration.I also play rugby union, scuba dive whenever possible and can hold my own in a blues guitar jam.

Presentation: Exploring Caves, You, and Building Better Big Data Apps

Track: Solution Track Thursday / Time: Thursday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Abbey Room

What does exploring through dark caves (spelunking) and app development have in common? Turns out, quite a bit. Historically, it has been challenging to find a lightweight integrated solution that provides the illumination into how your apps are behaving. In this session, we'll use Splunk and our Java SDK as a frame of reference to explore getting better insights into your applications and how you can build compelling big data applications today.We’ll also cover some cool ways you can monitor your JVM infrastructures and integrate with the Spring framework.
