Summingbird at CUFP

by Sam Ritchie

Published September 22, 2013 in Programming

Twitter's Summingbird library allows developers and data scientists to build massive streaming MapReduce pipelines without worrying about the usual mess of systems issues that come with scale. This talk will discuss our experience applying functional programming ideas and techniques to the development of the Summingbird library, the power of clean, mathematical abstractions and the massive creative leverage that functional design constraints can give to a project.
