More on the talks after the jump:
There were two talks at the event:
It was particularly encouraging to see so many great questions asked by the participants - there was clearly a ton of stream processing and message queue expertise in the room! It was also great to chat to people already trialling Kinesis.
The slides I presented are below:
The live demo gave a sneak peak at the two new Kinesis-based Snowplow components coming in version 0.9.0:
I’m afraid that I don’t (yet!) have a way of recreating or sharing the live demo - this is something we will hopefully come back to following the 0.9.0 release.
It was a great evening - and hopefully the first of many as the Kinesis community takes shape here in the UK! A big thank you to Peter Mounce and the Just Eat Engineering team for being such excellent hosts, and a warm thanks for Ian Meyers for giving us the inside track on Amazon Kinesis!
Do please join the group to be kept up-to-date with upcoming meetups, and if you would like to give a talk, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
