Firebase with Doug Stevenson

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Firebase.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Firebase is a backend-as-a-service. The key efficiency of a backend-as-a-service is that it enables developers to go from having a 3-tier architecture (client, server, database) to a 2-tier architecture (client, backend-as-a-service). The team who started Firebase built it as a pivot. They had started a social network, and then they realized there wasn’t a good backend for chat tools. And so they started

Apache Beam with Frances Perry

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Apache_Beam__Edited.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Unbounded data streams create difficult challenges for our application architectures. The data never stops coming, and we are forced to assume that we will never know if or when we have seen all of our data. Some streaming systems give us the tools to deal partially with unbounded data streams, but we have to complement those streaming systems with batch processing, in a
