Philip Kromer

Infochimps

I am CTO and co-founder of infochimps.com, the leading big data platform in the cloud. At infochimps we’ve built a scalable architecture that allows app programmers and statisticians to quickly and confidently manipulate data streams at arbitrary scale — terabytes in size, thousands of events per second, dozens of disparate data sources. We use a mixture of Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Storm/Kafka, Goliath and other industrial-strength solutions.

My projects include Wukong, (the most-used frameworks for Ruby streaming in hadoop); Ironfan (cloud orcestration capable of spinning up clusters large or small at the push of a button); Configliere (ruby configuration made easy); and I’m a core committer to Goliath (liquid fast concurrent web framework).

I am the author of “Big Data for Chimps”, a book on data science in practice for O’Reilly books (j.mp/bigdata4cbook). I have spoken at South by Southwest, Hadoop World, Strata, NIST and CloudCon, and contributed a case study chapter to “Hadoop: The Definitive Guide”.
