ScyllaDB Summit Speakers on NoSQL, Rust, Distributed Systems & Event Streaming

 

ScyllaDB Summit 2022 is less than a month away. We’ve already shared a bit about what you can expect, and we’re busy setting the virtual stage for 30+ industry experts to share innovations, insights, and best practices for your data-intensive applications.

It’s time to turn the tables. Let’s hear directly from some of the speakers you can learn from and interact with live on February 9 and 10.

Update:  ScyllaDB Summit 2022 is a wrap! All the on-demand recordings and speaker slide decks are available now. 

WATCH VIDEOS ON DEMAND

Alexys Jacob, Numberly

Alexys, the CTO of Numberly, will be presenting “Learning Rust the Hard Way for a Production Kafka + ScyllaDB Pipeline.”

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

Rust newbie fasttrack to production experience.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

  • What You Need to Know About ScyllaDB 5.0: Because Avi Kivity will finally unleash Raft!
  • The Future of Consensus in ScyllaDB 5.0 and Beyond: Because Raft will provide the foundation of a radical change in how we perceive Cassandra and ScyllaDB so far. ScyllaDB is finally taking its own way forward.
  • Overcoming the Performance Cost of Streaming Transactions: I’m so frustrated not to have tested Redpanda yet!
  • Stream Processing with ScyllaDB – No Message Queue Involved!: ScyllaDB to replace a message queue? That’s a bold move I want to hear about!
  • ScyllaDB Rust Driver: One Driver to Rule Them All: Because I know how cool it is to use!
  • ScyllaDB 5.0 New Features, Part 1 and 2: Because I want it now!!!

Piotr, software engineer at ScyllaDB, will be presenting “ScyllaDB Rust Driver: One Driver to Rule Them All” as well as “ScyllaDB Embraces Wasm.”

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

Rust!

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

I’m looking forward to Daniel Belenky’s Stream Processing with ScyllaDB – No Message Queue Involved! and Alexys Jacob’s Learning Rust the Hard Way for a Production Kafka + ScyllaDB Pipeline. Both are quite intriguing and it looks like they are going to show two vastly different ways of how ScyllaDB can interact with stream processing.

The blog Async Rust in Practice: Performance, Pitfalls, Profiling and its accompanying HackerNews discussion. Also, two more blogs: ScyllaDB Rust Driver Update and Benchmarks and ScyllaDB Developer Hackathon: Rust Driver.

Miles Ward, SADA

Miles, CTO at SADA, will be presenting “Multi-cloud State for k8s: Anthos and ScyllaDB” along with Jenn Viau, Associate CTO at SADA.

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

Because memes deserve high-availability multi-cloud too 😉

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

ScyllaDB Cloud with Adar Bahar. We have strong opinions about how to make something like this absurdly great, so we’re looking forward to seeing how ScyllaDB does it!

José Cantera, IOTA Foundation

José, Technical Analyst & Project Lead at IOTA Foundation, will be presenting “Scalable and Sustainable Supply Chains with DLTs and ScyllaDB.”

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

Understand how Interoperability + ScyllaDB-bility enable billion-dollar industry.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

How ScyllaDB Powers This Next Tech Cycle because I want to get inspired on how ScyllaDB can tackle the next generation of data-intensive applications that will enable digitization for all industries at global scale.

The Zebra-IOTA Edge SDK which explains how to enable Zebra Edge Devices with IOTA for novel supply chain and self-sovereign identity use cases

Also, the Zebra-IOTA Track & Trace Ledger APIs, Tutorials: How to use IOTA Reference, pre-commercial implementations of some building blocks for supply chains as a Service:

Will LaForest, Confluent

Will, Public Sector CTO at Confluent, will be presenting “An Odyssey to ScyllaDB and Apache Kafka.”

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

Three way ScyllaDB mac with Kafka.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

Learning Rust the Hard Way for a Production Kafka + ScyllaDB Pipeline. It sounds like they have some hard-earned lessons around the adoption of Rust with ScyllaDB and Kafka and I have yet to use Rust so I expect I learn quite a bit

Timothy Spann, StreamNative

Timothy, Developer Advocate at StreamNative, will be presenting “FLiP Into Apache Pulsar Apps with ScyllaDB.”

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

Easy, fast streaming with Pulsar and ScyllaDB.

Mostly looking forward to the ScyllaDB team talks especially the new features in ScyllaDB 5.0 and ScyllaDB cloud.

Extra credit: Any recommended resources for getting more out of your session?

We will cover the basics of a CDP. No extra resources are needed as long as you are acquainted with the fundamentals of ScyllaDB (I recommend the ScyllaDB Essentials course on ScyllaDB University for that).

Pascal Desmarets, Hackolade

Pascal, Hackolade Founder and CEO, will be presenting “Migrating SQL Schemas for ScyllaDB: Data Modeling Best Practices.”

Why attend your session (7 words or less)?

ScyllaDB success requires data modeling.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?
