Who is this presentation for?

  • Anyone working with data whose defining dimension is time

Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of time series data models
  • A use case that involves time series data

What you'll learn

  • Explore all aspects of time series data


The ongoing and steep increase in the number of internet-connected devices is inescapable, but traditional data processing pipelines are poorly equipped to deal with streaming data and other data whose defining dimension is time.

If you have data that has a time factor to it, then you need to think in terms of time series datasets. Ted Malaska explores time series in all of its forms, from tumbling windows to sessionization in batch or in streaming. Ted dives into real-world use cases and shares patterns to help you get the most value from your datasets. You’ll gain exposure to the tools and background you need to be successful in the world of time-oriented data.
