Kiran Gilvaz and Vahid Hashemian
Kiran Gilvaz is a Senior Software Engineer at IBM (Watson Customer Experience Analytics)
He is the architect and lead developer for the IBM Digital Analytics Real-time Initiative.
Previously, he was a developer with IBM Universal Behavior Exchange that was built on Apache Kafka and IBM Digital Analytics suite.
Vahid Hashemian is a Senior Software Engineer at IBM with a focus on open technologies.
He is a member of the Apache Kafka community and active contributor to the project.
He applies his Kafka knowledge in IBM projects that leverage this platform.
The Art of Real-Time Streaming Analytics
The IBM Digital Analytics Real-time Engine currently spans across multiple data centers and processes millions of events per second. In this session, we discuss how Kafka helped us implement and maintain a real-time streaming analytics engine. Using powerful tools like Kafka Streams API we are able to provide real-time insights into user behavior online; and now, with KSQL, we are looking into generating session based information like active conversions, open orders, etc. We also highlight some of the lessons we learnt along the way and describe certain metrics that were important in ensuring the integrity of our cluster.
Tim Berglund is a teacher, author, and technology leader with Confluent, where he serves as the Senior Director of Developer Experience. He can frequently be found at speaking at conferences in the United States and all over the world. He is the co-presenter of various O’Reilly training videos on topics ranging from Git to Distributed Systems, and is the author of Gradle Beyond the Basics. He tweets as @tlberglund, blogs very occasionally at http://timberglund.com, is the co-host of the http://devrelrad.io podcast, and lives in Littleton, CO, USA with the wife of his youth and their youngest child, the other two having mostly grown up.
Apache Kafka is the de facto standard stream processing platform, being widely deployed as a messaging system, and having a robust data integration framework (Kafka Connect) and stream processing API (Kafka Streams) to meet the needs of typical real-time message processing architectures. Even better, we now have KSQL, a declarative, SQL-like stream processing language that lets you define powerful stream-processing applications easily. What once took some moderately sophisticated Java code can now be done at the command line with a familiar and eminently approachable syntax. This hands-on workshop on the basics of Kafka and KSQL will leave you ready to explore both technologies further!
** IMPORTANT ** If you are using Mac or Linux, be sure to download the Confluent Open Source distribution (https://www.confluent.io/download/) and clone the KSQL developer preview (https://github.com/confluentinc/ksql) before the workshop! If you're using Windows, a VM will be provided on the day of the event.
