Last week in Stream Processing & Analytics 5/30/2016

This is the 16th installment of my blog series around Stream Processing and Analytics.

Last week saw the open sourcing of Twitter Heron, yet another stream processing system created by Twitter. Heron has been powering all of Twitter’s real-time analytics for over two years. Heron is backward compatible with the Storm ecosystem, the stream processing solution previously used by Twitter.  Joe Stein already created an article showing how to get started with Heron on Apache Mesos.
