A couple of weeks ago we gave a presentation at Big Data Montreal about our system, specifically the activity feed and data pipeline. The talk covers how and why Cassandra is used at Mate1 as well as the related technologies. We start by going over the technology stack, then we discuss how Cassandra serves Mate1′s users with news feeds and counters with the help of Kafka, Akka, and Netty. We then go on to discuss current and future plans with our Cassandra usage. You can find the slides here. Enjoy! (=
