Day of week: Monday

Compelling applications of stream processing & recent advances in the field

Track Host:
Tyler Akidau
Engineer @Google & Founder/Committer on Apache Beam

Tyler Akidau is a senior staff software engineer at Google Seattle. He leads technical infrastructure’s internal data processing teams in Seattle (MillWheel & Flume), is a founding member of the Apache Beam PMC, and has spent the last seven years working on massive-scale data processing systems. Though deeply passionate and vocal about the capabilities and importance of stream processing, he is also a firm believer in batch and streaming as two sides of the same coin, with the real endgame for data processing systems the seamless merging between the two. He is the author of the 2015 Dataflow Model paper, the Streaming 101 and Streaming 102 articles, and the upcoming Streaming Systems book. His preferred mode of transportation is by cargo bike, with his two young daughters in tow.

Lead Architect @Qubit

Every year, we’ve set ourselves a goal of dramatically improving the performance and efficiency of our core data pipelines. We’ve done this by re-writing, effectively from scratch, the streaming pipelines that are responsible for processing over 120,000 events per second to deliver realtime personalisation to millions of web and mobile clients.

From our initial custom ETL system to the latest generation powered by Apache Beam,...

Committer @ApacheFlink, CTO @dataArtisans

Come learn how Apache Flink is making stateful stream processing even more expressive and flexible to support applications in streaming that were previously not considered streamable.

Over the last years, data stream processing has redefined how many of us build data pipelines. Apache Flink is one of the systems at the forefront of that development: With its versatile APIs (event-time streaming, Stream SQL, events/state) and...
