We want to invite you to join us for the second Beam meet up in London. We will have 2 speakers: the first one talking about a use-case and the second one is a technical deep dive. We hope to be able to welcome you again in the Qubit ( offices at the start of the new year!

18:30 - Registrations, pizza and drink

18:45 - Kick off + 1st talk: Beam in practice: Fraud detection in finance using Beam

19:15 - 2nd talk: Beam in-depth: IO in Beam. Current state and future state with Splittable DoFns


1st talk
Vadim Sobolevski ( will explain how and why he leveraged Beam in his business. FutureFlow is building a fraud detection system monitoring flows of money across banks. Vadim will talk about how Google Cloud Platform, and Beam and Bigtable in particular, enabled him to go from idea to working prototype in just a couple of months and the wins and pains he experienced along the way.

2nd talk
For our technical talk, we welcome Jean-Baptiste Onofre (, fellow and software architect at Talend. As an ASF member and contributor to ~20 Apache projects, giving talks at Strata, and being one of the initial committers on the Beam project (as well as being a PMC member on project), JB is in the perfect position to teach us more about the current and future state of IO in Beam and how this relates and works with Splittable DoFn’s.

Who should attend
Everyone interested in Data Engineering, Data Science and Machine Learning, who wants to learn about one of the newer and exciting Apache projects focused on batch & stream processing of data. We try to cover both business value as well as digging deeper technically.

Thanks to Qubit ( for providing the space, food & drinks at this meet up.
