There's a new Atlanta Spring User Group. They've had two meetings so far, and a lot of members right off the bat. "What's Spring?" you ask. It's a Java/J2EE application platform, released under the Apache 2.0 license.You may have hear of some of its parts: Groovy and Grails. They seem to be closely tied to VMWare.

    With Spring XD the answer is Fact.  In short Spring XD provides a one stop shop for writing and deploying Big Data Applications.  It provides a scalable, fault tolerant,  distributed runtime for Data Ingestion, Analytics, and Workflow Orchestration using a single programming, configuration and extensibility model.  By reducing the complexity of Big Data development, developers can focus on the business problem.

    In this discussion, we will cover: 

    • The basics of Spring XD

    • Show how to deploy streams that will handle data received from multiple sources, and write the results to various sinks

    • Capture some analytics from a live data stream 

    • Show how to create and execute Jobs

    • Demonstrate the failover capabilities of a XD Cluster

    • Discuss how to create your own custom modules


    As a Pivotal engineer, Glenn Renfro is a core committer for the Spring XD project and also is a contributor/committer to Spring Integration and Batch.  Glenn is based in Atlanta.

    Meeting Details:

    The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM, allowing members time to network, arrive and enjoy pizza. At 7 PM, ASUG will give an introductory welcome, and will be shortly followed by the presentation. As always, everyone has the option to head downstairs to Aja for networking and drinks after the meeting.

    Important Note:

    Parking at the One Alliance Center is $10 max. If you wish to go to Aja after the meeting they will validate part of your parking. If parking is a problem, some members park at Phipps Plaza for free and walk over. ASUG does NOT validate parking.
