About this talk: No resource is more scarce than time. That’s why streaming data pipelines are so highly valued, despite the implementation difficulty. Come and learn key principles of designing and building highly scalable stream processing systems from an engineer who has built them using Go at Segment and Cloudflare.

About the speaker:
Alan Braithwaite is a hacker who cares deeply about building reliable, scalable systems. During his tenure at Cloudflare he helped bring the data pipeline to 8 million events per second using Go. Now at Segment, he’s helping scale the microservices based platform using the power gained from the plush gopher which sits on his desk.
