Topic: The Beginner's Guide to the Stream Processing Galaxy
Imagine storing all of Twitter in a database. Now, imagine trying to *query* that data in a meaningful way. And, *now* imagine how much horsepower you'd need, and how long you might have to wait.
Stream Processing is all about doing something with data *as it arrives*. And stream processing has become a fundamental part of the world of Big Data.
In this demo-heavy session, we will work with real data to produce some really cool insights on data.
More importantly: This is an introductory session! While tools like Spark can seem intimidating to master, we are going to take the anti-intimidating, fun approach.
Speaker: David Makogon, Principal Software Engineer, Azure+Data+Snacks at Microsoft
