Yann Schwartz of Criteo presents:  Sweet Streams Are Made Of These




Been working for a while, with functional and dysfunctional languages, my current favorites being those with a lot of parenthesis or those wearing a moustache and sporting a slight swedish accent. My interests and work revolve around distributed systems and biggish data, and I get to indulge in both at Criteo, working on everything streamy and clusterish.


Let me tell you a secret: stream processing is boring. It’s just reading a file. Well, many files. Over the network. An unreliable one. And it’s sequential but not quite. And they’re not really files. And your memory is limited. And so is your bandwidth. And you have to do it on many hosts at the same time and it would be great if it still worked when these pesky machines decide to die. It’s like drinking magma from a thousand firehoses.

From humble log importing and ETL to shiny new Machine Learning thingies, many things can be done online, on the fly. But you have to start questioning your assumptions about time, once and only once delivery, accuracy – and embrace statistical fuzziness and healthy paranoia.
