How to Use Apache Ignite, In-Memory Data Fabric

Nikita Ivanov, Founder of Apache Ignite and CTO of GridGain Systems

Free beer, drinks & pizza, swag + win a Quadcopter Drone!

A Database Month event

This presentation will provide a deep dive into Apache Ignite, a top-level Apache project.

Apache Ignite is the in-memory data fabric that combines in-memory cluster & computing, in-memory data grid and in-memory streaming under one umbrella of a fabric. In-memory data fabric slides between applications and various data sources and provides applications with the ultimate performance and scalability.

Apache Ignite is the first general purpose in-memory computing platform in the Apache Software Foundation family. It is expected that Apache Ignite will have the same effect on Fast Data processing as Hadoop had on Big Data processing.

Nikita Ivanov, Founder of Apache Ignite and CTO of GridGain Systems

Nikita Ivanov is founder of the Apache Ignite project and CTO of GridGain Systems. Nikita has led GridGain to develop advanced distributed in-memory data processing technologies that have become the premiere Java-based in-memory data fabric, with instances being depoloyed every 10 seconds, throughout the world.

Nikita has over 20 years of experience in software application development, building HPC and middleware platforms, and has contributed to the efforts of notable companies including Adaptec, Visa and BEA Systems.

Back in 1996, Nikita became one of the pioneers of using Java technology for server side middleware development, while he was working for one of Europe's largest system integrators.

He is an active member of the Java middleware community and contributor to the Java specification. He is also a frequent international speaker, having given over 50 presentations globally at various developer conferences over the last 5 years.

Swag giveaway + food/drinks at 6:30pm 
Power-Networking at 6:35pm 
Presentation starts at 6:40pm

    I was not able to attend this meetup. Do we have any recorded videos or presentation deck?

    Great meetup. Listening to Nikita Ivanov debate various challenges of high-volume transaction processing and data storage with attendees was riveting. Thank you.

    This was my first meet. Very interesting technology being developed here. It reminds me of The development of Java, where (oracle) created a JVM to run an interpreter between "machine bytes" between many different OS systems, instead of re-compiling for different OS system for C programming. From what I understand, Grid Gain is a fast twitch memory (RAM) that is physically layered in between the back-end development & the database. This allows back-end developers to read and write on to the memory, faster and across multiple database structures, as opposed to re-compiling code for different database styles (postgres, sql ,mongo db). It has some sort of a fail safe feature, in-case the back-end database drop. The memory in the Ram will persist. It is about 1000x faster than calling the database directly. The max gain of this technology is when the the back-end HDD (Database) and RAM (Grid Gain) is at a 1:1 ratio. I believe this will open the door towards newer technology.

    Want to ask: is the apache-ignite/examples/src/test/java8/org/apache/ignite/java8/examples/ low hanging fruit for wannabe contributors?
