Will real-time data processing replace batch processing?
At Confluent's user conference, Kafka co-creator Jay Kreps argued that stream processing would eventually supplant traditional methods of batch processing altogether.
Absolutely: Businesses operate in real-time and are looking to move their IT systems to real-time capabilities.
Eventually: Enterprises will adopt technology slowly, so batch processing will be around for several more years.
No way: Stream processing is a niche, and there will always be cases where batch processing is the only option.

There’s a Twitter meme that started today called #ILookLikeAnEngineer. It doesn’t really need explaining. The tweets and pictures speak for themselves.

The campaign, started by four women, is trending on Twitter. Here’s the post by Isis Anchalee, explaining how and why it started.

There’s a sense of humanity to the campaign that makes it real and very effective.

The meme goes way beyond the “women in tech” efforts that pop up. This is more about people expressing themselves, showing who they are and what makes them individuals.

Good stuff.
