Join us Tuesday July 28th at the Conversant offices at 101 N Wacker, 23rd Floor at 5:30 pm for a Chicago Spark User’s Meetup. Thomas Omans of Commission Junction by Conversant will give us a preview of his Scala By the Bay talk on Kafka-rx.

Kafka enables high throughput log distributed processing while Reactive Extensions enables push systems through rich functional patterns. Let’s see where the two meet through examples from a small library, and explore the foundations of stream processing.
