Srinivasan 8:00pm- Panel Discussion & Questions 8:30pm- Event ends Speaker: Tom Camp DevRel Engineer at Ably Title: Multiplayer Rock, Paper, Scissor Let’s start the evening with some light fun. We'll play a live, multiplayer game of “Rock, Paper, Scissor” (sorry, no Spock). All you’ll need is your phone and your inner child. After the game, Tom Camp from Ably will give a quick explainer on the backend used to build the game, and how the same combination can be built for building massively scalable real-time applications with: Ably for the real-time pub/sub messaging layer Aerospike for holding the true state and processing inputs into outputs Kafka for feeding user-specific details to each user Tom is a DevRel Engineer at Ably. His current interest lies in open real-time data and ways of representing and sharing it. He’s also a member of the Open API and Async API communities which work towards standardizing the specifications and capabilities of APIs. In his spare time, Tom is an avid MMO player, and loves modding with initiatives such as Runelite. Speaker: Tim Spann, Developer Advocate at StreamNative Speaker: David Kjerrumgaard, Developer Advocate at StreamNative Title: Unified Messaging & Data Streaming Utilizing the Open-Source FLiP Stack we can track aircraft overhead with ease! It does require a little bit of hardware and some Python magic. In this talk, you will learn how to build your own at home with a few bits of hardware and some easy open-source software." Tim Spann is a Developer Advocate for StreamNative. He works with StreamNative Cloud, Apache Pulsar, Apache Flink, Flink SQL, Apache NiFi, MiniFi, Apache MXNet, TensorFlow, Apache Spark, Big Data, the IoT, machine learning, and deep learning. Tim has over a decade of experience with the IoT, big data, distributed computing, messaging, streaming technologies, and Java programming. He blogs for DZone, where he is the Big Data Zone leader, and runs a popular meetup in Princeton on Big Data, Cloud, IoT, deep learning, streaming, NiFi, the blockchain, and Spark. Tim is a frequent speaker at conferences such as ApacheCon, DeveloperWeek, Pulsar Summit and many more. He holds a BS and MS in computer science. David Kjerrumgaard is Developer Advocate for StreamNative & Author of "Pulsar in Action" David is a committer on the Apache Pulsar project, and also the author of "Pulsar in Action" and co-author of "Practical Hive".

Prior to that he was a principal software engineer on the messaging team at Splunk, and Director of Solutions for two Big Data startups; Streamlio and Hortonworks. Speaker: Srini Srinivasan Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Aerospike. Title: Unlimited Scale Is Not a Number Aerospike's presentation will share with you our lessons-learned over a decade of experience! The technology and systems architecture will be the focus of this presentation, along with use-cases demonstrating how the architecture improves real-time SLAs at scale. We will discuss use-cases about how to achieve large-scale real-time data processing in sectors of gaming, finance, telecommunications, e-commerce, advertising and other industries. We will also discuss the developer APIs and the key capabilities for application development using key-value, document, Spark, Presto (SQL), graph and time series databases. Srini V.
