Visiting Miami to talk about Apache® Ignite™ as an SQL database & backbone for IoT

Heading to Miami to talk about Apache Ignite as SQL database and backbone for IoTApache® Ignite™ continues its tremendous evolution -- even on a day-to-day basis, new things are happening. Born as an in-memory data grid, Apache Ignite has turned into a scalable and fault-tolerant platform that can be used in a variety of use cases.

Curious to know why Apache Ignite can be considered as a distributed SQL database for your applications? Want to see how to build an IoT-based solution with Apache Ignite as part of a distributed storage and computational engine? Eager to learn more about the inner workings of the platform -- or perhaps just get some insights on the project's evolution?

If the answer is "yes" to at least one of these questions, then please join one of my talks during my visit to Miami May 17-18.

Miami Hadoop User Group, May 17 @6 p.m.

Talk: Apache Spark and Apache Ignite: Where fast data meets the IoT


During this talk, I'll show you how to build a software stack for an IoT solution that will receive endless streams from edge devices and will be capable of processing the machine data in real-time. In particular, you will learn the following:

- Data streaming to an Apache Ignite cluster from embedded devices powered by Apache Mynewt.
- Real-time data processing with Apache Spark and Apache Ignite.

ApacheCon North America, May 18 @ 3:30 p.m.

Absolutely the same talk will be delivered at ApacheCon. So if you cannot join the meetup, then stop by and catch it at the conference.

Talk: Apache Ignite SQL Grid: Hot Blend of Traditional SQL and Swift Data Grid


This talk is fully dedicated to Apache Ignite as a distributed SQL database. Specifically, I will introduce an Apache Ignite SQL Grid component that combines the best of two worlds - performance and scalability of data grids and traditional ANSI-99 SQL support of relational databases. Moreover, I'll take an existing application that works with a relational database and show you how to run it atop of Apache Ignite with minimum efforts. In particular, you will learn the following:

  • Using Apache Ignite's JDBC and ODBC drivers
  • ANSI-99 SQL queries including distributed joins
  • Data indexing
  • Data modification with ANSI-99 DML (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, etc.)
  • Automatic schema import from a relational database into Apache Ignite

Can't make it to Miami? Just drop me a line and I'll be happy to speak at your meetup (my schedule permitting). Just leave a comment below and let's connect!
