Getting Started with Stream Processing

60 minutes
July 31, 2018 @ 8:00am PDT / 11:00am EDT / 4:00pm BST / 5:00pm CEST

In This Webinar

This webinar will cover core techniques in streaming processing, including DAGs, serialization and wait-free algorithms for efficient cooperative multithreading as well as showing how to get started building a streaming application with Hazelcast Jet.

In this webinar Ben Evans, Java Champion, provides an introduction to stream processing techniques, and in particular, the functionally-oriented approach common to many distributed and streaming techniques – and why functional programming makes sense in this computational context.

Ben’s main case study to explaining these approaches is an experience report of a real application, BetLeopard. This is an example reference implementation of an open-source horse racing engine that is used to demonstrate the basic structure of a distributed and streaming computation.

He will use it to showcase some different ways of approaching a calculation problem, first by using Java 8 lambdas, then by using Parallel Streams for processing and then again with Hazelcast Jet – to show the impact of working with multiple JVMs vs contending parallel workloads within a single JVM.

Finally, Ben will introduce some other examples from the Jet demos repo – including Twitter sentiment analysis and real-time aircraft monitoring, to see some alternative use cases for the Jet technology.
