About the event:
Processing data in real time is an increasingly important problem in modern day data engineering. Programming frameworks such as Spark, Apex, and Flink have been adopted to satisfy this need. These frameworks, however, are designed to perform data processing in a cluster or large datacenter, ignoring the so-called “edge” devices for IoT. Apache Edgent (currently in incubation), is a framework for writing and controlling data streaming applications on remote IoT devices.
In this talk, we will discuss the basic concepts of data streaming, explore some of the use cases behind Edgent, and compare Edgent to its other streaming counterparts.
