Summingbird, Scala and Storm (Sam Ritchie, Twitter)

Sam Ritchie (@sritchie) from Twitter is going to talk about Summingbird, a library for performing computations across Storm and Hadoop, written in Scala.

Summingbird is a library that lets you write streaming MapReduce programs that look like native Scala or Java collection transformations and execute them on a number of well-known distributed MapReduce platforms like Storm and Scalding.

Sam will also talk about using Scala in Storm, and discuss why Scala is particularly well-suited to this work.


Thanks to Packt Publishing, we will be raffling off 2 electronic copies of the brand new "Storm Real-time Processing Cookbook" by Quinton Anderson (

    Presentation was organized and well delivered. Sam was very good at pointing out how a specific feature benefits the user. Well done. As usual, Ilya did a good job or organizing event.
