John Brinnand

http://www.stubhub.com

I have been in the software industry for 20+ years. In the past 4 years I have worked on cloud based distributed systems for Netflix and Stubhub. Most of these systems have been associated with data delivery and management. Some of the systems I have with with are: Solr, Cassandra, Zookeeper, Hadoop and StubHubs Big Data Platform. All these systems require a different approach in design,development and access patterns. However, there are underlying patterns in each of these systems. And these patterns radically change the approach of developers and users of these systems. Without them, building and deploying distributed systems, especially at scale, becomes exceedingly problematic. I wish to share some of these design and deployment patterns as well as their programming models with the folks at SVCC.
