I have been working with NoSQL technologies since 2020, using Scylla DB on complex systems.
Brian has built high throughput latency sensitive systems for 18 years. Somewhere in there he took a career holiday and pretended to be a data scientist. Now he is the technical lead for the Optimizely Data Platform.
When processing sports betting data, latency matters. Content must be processed in near real-time, constantly, and in a region local to where the customer and the data are. ZeroFlucs uses ScyllaDB in order to provide optimized data-storage local to the customer. In this session, Director of Software Engineering Carly Christensen takes you through how we distribute data, and how we use our recently open-sourced package, Charybdis to facilitate this.
Geetha is a Solutions engineer in the big data management space with experience in executing solutions for business problems on cloud and on-premises. She loved distributed computing during her undergrad days and has followed my interest ever since. She provides technical guidance, design advice, and thought leadership to key Confluent customers and partners, helping translate their enterprise business needs into right technical solutions, ensuring highest level of customer success and maturity, while keeping it all simple.
