At this meetup, Camille Fournier, Apache Zookeeper committer and PMC member, will give us intro-level talk about ZooKeeper, why it's useful, and what you should do with it now that you've got it running. She will cover the high-level purpose of ZooKeeper and guarantees that it provides,
as well as covering some of the basic use cases and operational concerns.
About Camille Fournier:
Camille Fournier is the Head of Engineering at Rent the Runway. In her spare time, she hacks distributed systems as a committer and PMC member of the Apache ZooKeeper community.
Why you should attend:
One of the requirements for running Storm or Hadoop cluster is to have a reliable Zookeeper setup. When you’re running a service distributed across a large cluster of machines, even tasks like reading configuration information, which are simple on single-machine systems, can be hard to implement reliably. The ZooKeeper framework was originally built at Yahoo! to make it easy for the company’s applications to access configuration information in a robust and easy-to-understand way, but it has since grown to offer a lot of features that help coordinate work across distributed clusters.
Apache Zookeeper became a de-facto standard for coordination service and used by Storm, Hadoop, HBase, ElasticSearch and other distributed computing frameworks.
Camille is an excellent speaker and I highly recommend to join us at this event.
