If you are like me, the Big Data wave has finally caught up to you. There is no escaping it and in truth (I can attest)with the way that ING is embracing it, it is a pretty interesting place to be!
So the question is, where do you start? This session will provide the introduction you need to kick-start your exploration into Big Data solutions. We will take a deep dive involving some of the architectures past, present and future at ING. We will also look at code examples for start-up projects for one of the leading open source distributed streaming platforms, Apache Kafka.
In a live demo, you will learn about some of the considerations that are worth keeping in mind when implementing Kafka producers in your project.
