Hope to see you there!

Here are the details:

Title: Fast and Easy Big Data Stream Processing

Learn all about directed acyclic graph (DAG) and why it is so powerful for Big Data processing. We will walk you through the evolution of Big Data computing, from sequential to DAG, as well as other techniques such as SP/SC, Cooperative Multithreading, Data Locality, In-Memory sources and sinks, and WaitFree algorithms that power the third generation of Big Data processing.

This talk will also feature an introduction to Hazelcast JET, an Apache 2 licensed, DAG-based platform for in-memory streaming and fast batch processing that illustrates many of the techniques found in a third generation Big Data platform.

We will walk you through Java coding common tasks and then step it up to writing full-blown applications in less than a hundred lines of Java code, for applications such as Bitcoin, Twitter sentiment analysis, and real-time worldwide commercial aircraft monitoring.
