Full session (30 minutes)
big data
Day 1 | 15:40-16:10 | A4

Streaming algorithms are everywhere, and are relevant for any developer that has to deal with scale - whether it's message streams or queries on big data.

While many developers will just treat them as black magic, a slightly more in-depth knowledge of them can be interesting and critically useful.

In this talk, I intend to:

  • Explain what streaming algorithms are,
  • Show how, in Glassbox, we used them in original ways to implement otherwise impossible solutions,
  • Present the difficulties and surprises,
  • Present a small catalog of useful algorithms that you could find original uses for.

After this talk, you will have powerful new tools in your coding arsenal.
