Sam Ritchie (@sritchie) from Twitter is going to talk about Summingbird, a library for performing computations across Storm and Hadoop, written in Scala.

Summingbird is a library that lets you write streaming MapReduce programs that look like native Scala or Java collection transformations and execute them on a number of well-known distributed MapReduce platforms like Storm and Scalding.

Sam will also talk about using Scala in Storm, and discuss why Scala is particularly well-suited to this work.
