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

Pivoting Spring XD to Spring Cloud Data Flow: A microservice based architecture for stream processing

Microservice based architectures are not just for distributed web applications! They are also a powerful approach for creating distributed stream processing applications. Spring Cloud Data Flow enables you to create and orchestrate standalone executable applications that communicate over messaging middleware such as Kafka and RabbitMQ that when run together, form a distributed stream processing application. This allows you to scale, version and operationalize stream processing applications following microservice based patterns and practices on a variety of runtime platforms such as Cloud Foundry, Apache YARN and others.
