Fast Data / Event-Driven Architecture

Join us for an evening of food, drink, and mingling, featuring a talk from Lead Consultant Jeroen Soeters and Senior Developer James Kent on fast data. This talk is on how we are leveraging the Lightbend reactive stack (Scala/Akka) and Kafka streams to move one of the top 3 consumer packaged goods companies in the world from a batch oriented systems architecture to a streaming platform. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Food & refreshments served. 



Jeroen Soeters is Lead Developer for ThoughtWorks. He works predominantly on distributed event-driven systems or micro services architectures. Prior to joining ThoughtWorks he ran a startup for many years and had a few short-lived consulting experiments all in the Netherlands where he grew up.
He's a long-time DDD practitioner, functional programming aficionado and relentless learner. His biggest passion at the moment is neuroevolution, a branch of machine learning that uses evolutionary computation to generate artificial neural networks. Currently he's based out of NYC where he's often found in bars that serve proper Belgian beer.

James Kent is a Senior Developer at ThoughtWorks. He has a keen interest in distributed systems, domain modeling, continuous integration, functional programming and testing eventually consistent complex systems. James strives to be hands on in all aspects of his projects and takes a breadth first approach to learning. On James’ current project, he is exploring the world of full-stack JavaScript. James currently resides in Philadelphia.
