All things Druid by Imply

Hello, Big Data enthusiasts!

We are excited to announce our next event which is dedicated to Apache Druid!


1st Talk:

Title: Druid: the open source, performant, real-time, analytical datastore.

Abstract: Apache Druid (incubating) makes it faster and easier for businesses to democratise the data exploration experience on vast quantities of real-time and historical data. Peter will present a sample of the exciting real-world examples of Druid ( in action, drawing attention to the technical and business problems Druid solves in decision support, digital services, and data science.

2nd Talk:

Title: Druid: under the covers.

Abstract: Druid clusters can scale to handle ingestion and query of many billions of events. In this talk, we will uncover how users of Druid are able to scale the distinct processes in Druid to handle massive data sets, and walk through the optimisations inside Druid’s OLAP-optimised data store that keeps data scan-time low and your query performance high.
