Handling Streaming Data in Spotify Using the Cloud



Neville Li and Igor Maravić cover the evolution of Spotify’s event delivery system focusing on the lessons learned from operating it and reasons behind the decision of moving it into the cloud. They discuss Scio, which they developed to make the Dataflow SDK easier to use. Scio is a high level Scala API for the Dataflow SDK which brings Dataflow closer to popular data processing frameworks.


Igor Maravić worked on developing and maintaining Spotify's gateways, migrating mobile clients from using custom TLV protocol to HTTP, designing and developing continuous delivery infrastructure, and stress testing services. Neville Li is a software engineer at Spotify who works mainly on data infrastructure for machine learning and advanced analytics.
