Scaling Real-time Transactional and Analytical Data Processing

  • 64 RSVP

Scalability, performance, and availability have historically been seen as separate tunables. Up to this point, the common perspective has been that a database system could have two but not all three of these characteristics. The advancement of Distributed SQL as a primary data platform has reshaped these assumptions.

Join the Data at Scale meetup where you will connect with industry-leading data experts and practitioners. We will be exploring the various challenges and obstacles that come with scaling data, as well as sharing practical experiences and best practices related to distributed SQL, data warehousing, data engineering, and data for model training (such as the kind that fuels AI models like ChatGPT).

Also enjoy delicious food and drinks, receive some cool swag, and even have the opportunity to win lucky draw prizes.

Agenda (CDT):
* 5:00pm~5:30pm: Checkin, Food/drink and networking
* 5:30pm~6:30pm: Tech talk: scaling data platform on hybrid transactional and analytical processing
* 6:30pm~7:00pm: Hands-on workshop and Demo
* 7:00pm: Open discussion & Mixer
