While "software is eating the world", those who are able to best manage the huge mass of data will emerge out on the top. The batch processing model has been faithfully serving us for decades. However, it might have reached the end of its usefulness for all but some very specific use-cases. As the pace of businesses increases, most of the time, decision makers prefer slightly wrong data sooner, than 100% accurate data later. Stream processing - or data streaming - exactly matches this usage: instead of managing the entire bulk of data, manage pieces of them as soon as they become available.
In this workshop, we will invite you to take your first steps to understanding and start working with stream processing! By the end of the course, you will be able to build and run distributed streaming pipelines in Java:
Explain when to use streaming
Design a streaming application from the building blocks
Transform, match, correlate and aggregate continuous data
Scale, deploy, and operate streaming apps
We will also cover the advantages and disadvantages of the stream processing technologies available when approaching real-world problems.
Pre-requisites: a working Java development environment: Java 8+, Maven, any IDE.
