Level:  Technical - Intermediate

Learn how to build a Twitter-like analytics system, designed to meet real time needs, in a simple way. Using frameworks such as Spring Social, Active In-Memory Data Grid for Big Data event processing, and NoSQL database.
  • Hadoop's batch-oriented processing is sufficient for many use cases, especially where the frequency of data reporting doesn't need to be up-to-the-minute. However, batch processing isn't always adequate, particularly when serving online needs such as mobile and web clients, or markets with real-time changing conditions such as finance and advertising.
  • In the same way that Hadoop was born out of large-scale web applications, a new class of scalable frameworks and platforms for handling streaming or real time analysis and processing is born to handle the needs of large-scale location-aware mobile, social and sensor use. Do we want to limit ourselves to just these use cases?
  • Facebook, Twitter and Google have been pioneers in that arena and recently launched new analytics services designed to meet the real time needs.
  • In this session we will Review the common patterns and architecture that drive these platforms and learn how to build a Twitter-like analytics system in a simple way using frameworks such as Spring Social, Active In-Memroy Data Grid for Big Data event processing, and NoSQL database such as Cassandra or Hbase for handling the managing the historical data.
