Video & Slides

Pyeongchang, South Korea – February 2018. The world is watching the Winter Olympics. Hockey, Skiing, Curling, Figure Skating and Bobsleighing: everything is being streamed online. Gracenote Sports set out to create a Kafka Streams pipeline as a lightning fast backend for Olympic Data widgets, powering a major Olympic broadcaster’s apps and website. Combining streams of real-time results, intermediate times, provisional standings, video logs and athletes’ biographies. For a gold medal in viewing experience. We are going to present an overview of our development using Kafka Streams to enhance our existing rich Olympic model and infrastructure. We will also present some of our experiences and results of running in production during the Olympics.
