What we're about

Are you interested in topics such as Big Data, IoT, Manufacturing and Automotive? If so, then KX Community meetups are for you.

Since the company’s inception, KX’s singular goal has been to provide its customers with the fastest, most efficient, and most flexible tools for processing real-time and historical data. In our meetups, we will be explaining how KX supports streaming analytics on extremely large data sets, that would simply swamp traditional technologies.

All skill levels are welcome for tech talks, presentations and other activities.

Looking forward to solving puzzles and having fun!
