Building Apps with Distributed In-Memory Computing using Apache Geode



6:00pm - 6:30pm: Food and mingling

6:30pm - 8:00pm: Building Apps with Distributed In-Memory Computing using Apache Geode

8:00pm - 8:30pm: Wind down

In this Meetup, we'll cover an introduction to the Apache Geode (incubating) project, an open source in-memory data grid based on the technology developed in GemFire.

This event is a prequel to the upcoming Apache Geode Summit event on Wednesday, March 9 which features deep dive sessions of Apache Geode case studies and technical hands-on training.

In-memory computing has allowed the development of super fast applications that process transactions and queries at millisecond speed. But when an application needs to scale to web or internet of things levels, the only option is to deploy a distributed system that can scale horizontally. This is the capability that an in-memory data grid such as Apache Geode provides for application developers.

We'll cover:

• What is an in-memory data grid

• Technology roots of Apache Geode

• How to develop low latency applications with Geode

• How to ensure scalability of your applications

• How to make your applications resilient

• Multiple demos of these features

About Nitin Lamba

Nitin leads product management at Ampool, a company he co-founded last year. Prior to Ampool, he worked at a robotics company, which builds ocean drones using a real-time Java platform. Before that industrial IoT start-up, Nitin had been with Pivotal for over a year leading in-memory data grid and monitoring/management of Data Fabric products.

Prior to joining Pivotal, Nitin was with Honeywell for 10+ years serving in progressive business and engineering roles, including strategic marketing and business development. In his last role at Honeywell’s Automation and Control Solutions, he was leading a product team for integrated building systems including automation hardware & software platforms.

He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Chemical engineering from IIT Delhi, India and NUS, Singapore respectively; and his MBA from INSEAD, France.
