WEBINAR REPLAY 

Design Streaming Fast Data Applications With Spark, Akka, Kafka and Cassandra on Mesos

With Craig Pottinger, Senior Software Consultant at Lightbend, Inc.

About This Webinar

Data today is online, in motion, and generated constantly. For architects, developers and their businesses, this means that there is a critical need for tools and applications that can process this data in real-time, generating actionable insights that can drive business value. How? By moving away from batch-centric processing to streaming, Fast Data pipelines that are fully Reactive.

In this webinar with Craig Pottinger, Senior Consultant at Lightbend, we examine the design choices around building streaming systems with technologies like Akka Streams, Apache Kafka, Apache Spark, Apache Flink, Mesosphere DC/OS and Lightbend Reactive Platform, all of which come integrated with Lightbend Fast Data Platform.

Craig will discuss how Fast Data Platform brings together a curated set of technologies—including streaming engines, a data backplane, reactive microservices, persistence, Machine Learning, purpose-built monitoring and more—plus on-demand guidance from experts to help you design, and then help your developers build, streaming fast data applications that are successful in the long-run.

Hugh is a solutions architect at Lightbend. He’s had a long career building applications that evolved slowly, that inefficiently utilized their infrastructure, and that were brittle and prone to failure. That all changed when he started building reactive, asynchronous, actor-based systems. This radically new way of building applications rocked his world. As an added benefit, building application systems became way more fun that it had ever been. Now he is focused on helping others to discover the significant advantages and joys of building responsive, resilient, elastic, message-based applications.
