Boston Storm Users is a group for developers using or hoping to learn about Twitter's Storm real-time data processing framework. We get together to discuss best practices, to exchange ideas and to learn how to apply Storm to various engineering challenges.
Storm is a distributed realtime computation system. Similar to how Hadoop provides a set of general primitives for doing batch processing, Storm provides a set of general primitives for doing realtime computation. Storm is simple, can be used with any programming language, and is a lot of fun to use!
