Edelson discusses the problem domain and what is needed in terms of strategies, architecture and application design and code to begin leveraging simpler data flows.


Helena Edelson is a committer to the Spark Cassandra Connector and a contributor to Akka, adding new features in Akka Cluster such as the initial version of the cluster metrics API and AdaptiveLoadBalancingRouter.
