Dan Herrera will be discussing the use of Trident and Kafka to implement realtime distributed streaming computations. Please see his recent blog post for more information: http://whoahbot.com/2013/07/10/writing-trident-topologies-in-clojure.html. Dan is a Data Engineer at Simple where he builds scalable distributed data processing platforms.
If we have any energy left, let's have a group discussion about core.async at the end of the meetup.
* Apologies for the late change of plans. There's a big data conflict of interest, and as a result I'm moving the meetup back a week to Thursday 7/25. The very first meetup of PDXBigData will be held on Thursday 7/18 at 7:00 pm at the Green Dragon. Please attend if you can; it should be fun.
