This year, Pulsar Summit North America will include tech deep dives, adoption stories, best practices, and insights into Pulsar’s global adoption and thriving community. Take a sneak peek below at a few of the featured sessions:

Featured Sessions

1. Streaming Machine Learning with Flink, Pulsar & Iceberg

David Christle, Staff Machine Learning Engineer, Discord Inc.

Learn how Discord leverages Pulsar along with Flink and Iceberg to power real-time machine learning applications for fighting abuse at scale & keeping over 150M active users safe. Together, the three technologies unlock faster feature engineering, backfilling, point-in-time accuracy, and minimize offline-online skew, making this architecture compelling for practical real-time ML in production.

2. The CAP Dilemma of Cloud-based Streaming Data Systems: Cost, Availability, Performance

Sijie Guo, Co-founder and CEO, StreamNative

Navigating the selection of a suitable streaming data technology for the cloud can be complex due to the myriad of factors involved. Among these, Cost, Availability, and Performance stand out as pivotal. Yet, a streaming data system in the cloud typically allows optimization in only two of these areas at once. In this session, we'll delve into the evolved CAP paradigm for Streaming Data systems in the cloud, analyze the behavior of various streaming data systems, and explore how Pulsar offers versatile solutions to cater to diverse needs.

3. A Journey to Deploy Pulsar on Cisco's Cloud Native IoT Platform

Alec Hothan, Principal Engineer, Cisco
Chandra Ganguly, Senior Director, Software Engineering, Cisco

Learn how Cisco, with one of the largest IoT platforms in the world, modernized this platform to be cloud native GitOps where Pulsar is replacing legacy message queue services and is deployed to multiple Kubernetes clusters. Discover how leveraging Pulsar contributed to dramatic performance improvement, operational overhead and OPEX reduction, including how they addressed disaster recovery, integrating with the cloud native platform, and integrating with the CI/CD pipeline to allow seamless and fast Pulsar upgrades from the time a new release is available to rolling upgrades on test and production clusters using FluxCD.
