Tomorrow, 7th of September at 12:00pm EDT, I will be doing an online live tech talk for Red Hat DevNation on showing how to handle big data with Infinispan.
You can register to see the talk live visiting the Red Hat DevNation Live site.

Last Tuesday I gave a talk at DevNation 2016 on building Reactive Applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. The slides for it will be uploaded to the DevNation site shortly, but for those who want to play around with the application demoed in the talk, you can find the code and instructions in this repository.
The Red Hat Developers blog posted a review of the talk in this address: http://developers.redhat.com/blog/2016/06/29/devnation-live-blog-building-reactive-applications-with-node-js-and-red-hat-jboss-data-grid/

At DevNation, Red Hat’s Galder Zamarreño gave a talk with a live demo, Building reactive applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. The demo consisted of building an event-based three tier web application using JBoss Data Grid (JDG) as the data layer, an event manager running on Node.js, and a web client. Recently, support for Node.js clients was added to JDG, opening up the performance of a horizontally scalable in-memory data grid, to reactive web and mobile applications.
JDG is capable of processing and storing real-time streams of data, while maintaining very fast response times. It does this by using the memory available from a dynamically scalable grid of machines. Galder described JDG as a four-in-one package capable of being:
a distributed cache.
a high performance NoSQL primary data store.
an event-driven data store, particularly for real time event processing.
a big data and Internet of Things (IoT) data store.
The three-tiered web app in the demo consisted of:
An event manager running on Node.js using Express.js.
JBoss Data Grid as the data store. Three nodes were used, running on the same laptop. Each element was guaranteed to be stored in two nodes, providing redundancy for fail over.

DevNation 2016: Galder Zamarreño on “Building reactive applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid”
Earlier this month I did an interview with the DevNation 2016 organizers to talk about my talk on forthcoming talk on building reactive applications with Node.js and JBoss Data Grid, the Infinispan version for which Red Hat provides professional support, certified integration, patches…etc.
The talk has been designed around a web application that promotes JBoss Data Grid talks in forthcoming conferences, user groups… etc. The application will contain a Node.js component whose job will be to interact with the backend JBoss Data Grid servers to store and retrieve data, as well as receiving events when new information has been added to the backend. Through the live coding of this application, the audience will get an understanding of how to interact with the newly released Node.js JBoss Data Grid client, and after the talk they’ll have access to the code to be able to try it themselves.
Tuesday 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Room 133
About the presenter:
These days I’m hugely interested by the purely functional ones such as Haskell, Elm or Purescript because the lack of mutability makes their solutions both elegant and easier to reason about. I’m also keeping a close eye as well on the Erlang ecosystem, e.g. Elixir, because I feel that the predictable latency offered by the Erlang VM is something that it’s not so easy to achieve in Java Virtual Machine.
I think learning other programming languages is one of the best things a developer can do, because it opens your mind to different points of view, different ways to solve problems, and widens the solution space.
