Montreal Storm Users is a group for developers using or hoping to learn about Twitter's Storm real-time data processing framework. We hold meetups to exchange information and learn from each other. 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 and can be used with many programming languages. It's deployed at places like Twitter, Groupon, Klout, Hopper and many others. So whether you're using Storm in your production systems or are just curious to learn about this new technology, come and meet with us!
