In this episode of Building The Backend we hear from Simon Crosby – CTO @ Swim an open source edge computing operating system, where we talk all about edge computing, event streaming and much more.

Below are top 3 value bombs:

  • Edge means more than just being physically located somewhere it could also mean in the cloud. It really is the closest point of where your source data is being generated.
  • Continuous intelligence is a design pattern where streaming data is directly tied into business operations.
  • Kafka is continuing to hold it’s strong position in the event streaming space.
