What we'll do
In this workshop we will learn about In-Memory Computing Essentials for Java Developers
Time between 17:30 and 18:00 will be used for refreshment and setup of your laptops. Don't forget to bring your own laptop since this is hands on workshop.
Attendees will be introduced to the fundamental capabilities of in-memory computing platforms that boost high-load applications and services, and bring existing IT architecture to the next level by storing and processing a massive amount of data both in RAM and, optionally, on disk.
The capabilities and benefits of such platforms will be demonstrated with the usage of Apache Ignite, which is the in-memory computing platform that is durable, strongly consistent, and highly available with powerful SQL, key-value and processing APIs. By the end of the workshop the attendees will learn how:
* Configure and deploy Apache Ignite clusters.
* Partitioning and replication works at the nutshells.
* Process distributed data sets using key-value, SQL and compute APIs.
* Apply collocated processing concept in practice.
* Configure SQL schemas and tap into SQL language.
* Enable and utilize persistence.
The workshop is based on Java programming language. The attendees should be familiar with the language basics.
