Unified processing with the Samza High-level API


There are more and more applications that need to process both batch and stream data set in a unified programming API with flexible deployment model. The newly released version (0.13) of Apache Samza improves the simplicity and portability of Samza applications. The new high-level API supports common operations like windowing, map and join on streams. Developers can now express application logic concisely in few lines of code and accomplish what previously used to require several jobs. The other exciting Samza 0.13.0 feature is flexible deployment. It empowers developers to deploy and scale Samza applications as a simple embedded library, which is much more flexible than the original YARN deployment model. This talk will cover the new high-level API and flexible deployment as well as batch processing, both in terms of what is available and what is coming in the future.
