Real-time big data frameworks are enabling brand-new use cases, while the cloud is letting us do things cheaper and faster than ever. Together, they’re making it easier to create production real-time systems. But to handle real-time big data, you need to solve two difficult problems: how do you ingest that much data and how will you process that much data?
Jesse Anderson explores the latest real-time frameworks (both open source and managed cloud services), discusses the leading cloud providers, and explains how to choose the right one for your company. Focusing on Apache Kafka and Apache Spark, Jesse also demonstrates how to ingest data, process it, analyze it, and display it in real time in a dashboard.
For the final exercise, you’ll take data that has been ingested with Kafka and process it with Spark Streaming and visualize it on a web page with D3. This video gives a little more information about the final exercise so you can see the skills you’ll take away from the class.

Someone had a question during the sesssion about Apache Kafka versus Apache pulsar. Found this useful:
Looks like this session will in Java?
Yes, see this post for why
I am not new to Java but I do not use it day to day or have used it regularly in the past either. I have some understanding. I am not sure if I will need some prep before taking this session.
You should make sure you have an intermediate level of Java knowledge. Big Data isn’t going to stress your knowledge of Java syntax.
Will we doing the exercise of ingesting data, process it, analyze it, and display it in real time in a dashboard with Apache Kafka and Apache Spark during the session from stratch?
Yes, the video you watched shows the final exercise where we are doing everything from scratch. The VM has everything set up so you’re not worrying about installing and configuring services.
Sorry had some more questions.
Hi Jesse, I had a quick glance at the video linkedin in the description and Looks like this session will in Java?
I’ll be distributing the materials the day of the class. There will be some pre-class preparations. Be on the lookout for that email. You will need your laptop for the class.
What about the material ?
Can I bring my laptop?
