“I don’t need stream processing because I don’t have streaming data.” - Anonymous

In general people relate to streams as data models which are naturally streaming (infinite asynchronous messages) or relate to realtime big data processing. In this talk Nitesh Kant, will try to break this myth by emphasizing the fact that streams exists everywhere, be it data read from sockets, protocols like HTTP or microservice composition. He will explain how extending this ubiquitous interaction model into applications can result in simpler, resilient and maintainable systems.
You will learn, how to start thinking “streaming first” through concrete examples and how adopting this mental model makes writing application easier.
