Connecting People & Events in Real-Time at Scale. Cassandra, Solr, and a Big Data Platform Makes the Difference


Whether it is a nice cocktail bar, a dinner reservation, the big game, or your son/daughters game, getting together in real life is difficult. In this talk, we take a look at how Zync Up is bringing in events and people at scale, and allowing them to meet up using a big data stack built to scale linearly. This will cover everything from real-time streaming at the millisecond level (how you model and scale for that), and then integrating an events platform that is as dynamic as you are.
