This track looks at various tooling used to build real-time applications and the underlying data infrastructure that supports the movement of data to computation. Examples of talks include case studies on how applications use messaging systems, how applications maintain consistency and correctness while ingesting large amounts of data, and computational frameworks for processing data with low latency. This is a practical track for engineers looking to design the backbone of a data intensive application architecture.
