Apache Beam with Kenn Knowles and Pablo Estrada
"This was a bunch of separate communities forming a new one, at the same time they formed the software project. So I loved it. I was so happy to be on a project when something this wild happened."
Eric Anderson (@ericmander) reunites with old colleagues Kenn Knowles (@KennKnowles) and Pablo Estrada (@polecitoem) for a conversation on Apache Beam, the open-source programming model for data processing. The trio once worked together at Google, and Beam was a turning point in the history of open-source there. Today, both Kenn and Pablo are members of the Beam PMC, and join the show with the inside scoop on Beam’s past, present and future.
In this episode we discuss:
Transitioning Beam to the Apache Way
How “inner source” works at Google
Thoughts on the relationship between batch processing and streaming
Some ways that community “power users” have contributed to Beam
