MeghanScalable event analytics with Ruby on Rails & MongoDB
Tuesday November 16th @ Gilt Groupe
Please RSVP with your full name so that I can add you to the list for security!
Are you developing a big data application and wish that it was as easy as building a Ruby on Rails application? Are you frustrated with MySQL and the bottlenecks it imposes on your system? Are you fighting with Hadoop and how to make it work seamlessly with your Rails apps? At Yottaa, we faced these challenges: we need to process lots and lots of data very quickly and we want to be able to build these apps as quickly and efficiently as any other Rails applications. In this talk I'll show you how you can use Ruby on Rails and MongoDB to build a scalable data processing platform with just a fraction of the resources of competing solutions.
