SkillsCast

Laying down the SMACK on your data pipelines

8th March 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from SMACK & Data Modelling

You’ve heard all of the hype, but how can SMACK work for you? In this all-star lineup, you will learn how to create a reactive, scaling, resilient and performant data processing powerhouse. We will go through the basics of Akka, Kafka and Mesos and then deep dive into putting them together in an end2end (and back again) distrubuted transaction. Distributed transactions mean producers waiting for one or more of consumers to respond. On the backend, you will see how Apache Cassandra and Spark can be combined to add the incredibly scaling storage and data analysis needed for fast data pipelines. With these technologies as a foundation, you have the assurance that scale is never a problem and uptime is default.
