Esperwhispering: get your real-time data game on

Average rating: ****.
(4.38, 8 ratings)

Esper is an open-source complex event processing (CEP) system. In this session we’ll understand how real-time data management different from traditional data management, how Esper works, the possibilities introduced by incorporating CEP into your software stack and how to go about integrating Esper.

Knowledge of SQL (though there will be no SQL), databases, data, the web and Java will be helpful in understanding the examples. Several real-world, real-time examples will be demonstrated.

This was a great talk. I walked away with a good understanding of what CEP is and where I could use Esper.
