Data Evolution on HBase using Kiji by Adam Kunicki of Wibidata


Data changes over time often requiring carefully planned changes to database tables and application code. KijiSchema integrates best practices with serialization, schema design & evolution, and metadata management common in NoSQL storage solutions. In particular, KijiSchema provides strong guarantees of schema evolution and validation of reads and writes issued by application code. 

We'll be looking at how you can take advantage of KijiSchema in your HBase applications, especially if you're new to HBase.

The Kiji Project is a modular, open-source framework that enables developers and analysts to collect, analyze and use data in real-time applications.

Developers are using Kiji to build:

• Product and content recommendation systems

• Risk analysis and fraud monitoring

• Customer profile and segmentation applications

• Energy usage analytics & reporting

Adam joined the Field Engineering team at WibiData in 2013, after spending 4 years in Washington, DC working on ETL pipelines into Accumulo and high speed network protocol processing algorithms. Prior to that he spent 3 years working on process optimization and writing software for automated fault detection in the semiconductor manufacturing industry.

This meetup also marks the one year anniversary for the Los Angeles HBase Meetup Group. We will be raffling off some books and prizes to commemorate the occasion.
