  • How to choose the right type of database
    15 projects | dev.to | 28 Feb 2024
    Apache Druid: Focused on real-time analytics and interactive queries on large datasets. Druid is well-suited for high-performance applications in user-facing analytics, network monitoring, and business intelligence.
  • Choosing Between a Streaming Database and a Stream Processing Framework in Python
    10 projects | dev.to | 10 Feb 2024
    Online analytical processing (OLAP) databases like Apache Druid, Apache Pinot, and ClickHouse shine in addressing user-initiated analytical queries. You might write a query to analyze historical data to find the most-clicked products over the past month efficiently using OLAP databases. When contrasting with streaming databases, they may not be optimized for incremental computation, leading to challenges in maintaining the freshness of results. The query in the streaming database focuses on recent data, making it suitable for continuous monitoring. Using streaming databases, you can run queries like finding the top 10 sold products where the “top 10 product list” might change in real-time.

    It's always a question of tradeoffs.

    The awesome-selfhosted project has a nice list of open-source analytics projects. It's really good inspiration to dig into these projects and find out about the technology choices that other open-source tools in the space have made.

  • Analysing Github Stars - Extracting and analyzing data from Github using Apache NiFi®, Apache Kafka® and Apache Druid®
    8 projects | dev.to | 11 Jan 2023
    As part of the developer relations team in Imply, I thought it would be interesting to extract data about users who had starred the apache/druid repository. Stars don’t just help us understand how many people find Druid interesting, they also give insight into what other repositories people find interesting. And that is really important to me as an advocate – I can work out what topics people might be interested in knowing more about in my articles and at Druid meetups.

    Spencer Kimball (now CEO at CockroachDB) wrote an interesting article on this topic in 2021 where they created spencerkimball/stargazers based on a Python script. So I started thinking: could I create a data pipeline using Nifi and Kafka (two OSS tools often used with Druid) to get the API data into Druid - and then use SQL to do the analytics? The answer was yes! And I have documented the outcome below. Here’s my analytical pipeline for Github stars data using Nifi, Kafka and Druid.

  • When you should use columnar databases and not Postgres, MySQL, or MongoDB
    5 projects | dev.to | 25 Oct 2022
    But then you realize there are other databases out there focused specifically on analytical use cases with lots of data and complex queries. Newcomers like ClickHouse, Pinot, and Druid (all open source) respond to a new class of problem: The need to develop applications using endpoints published on analytical queries that were previously confined only to the data warehouse and BI tools.
  • Druids by Datadog
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 20 Sep 2022
    Datadog's product is a bit too close to Apache Druid to have named their design system so similarly.

    From https://druid.apache.org/ :

    > Druid unlocks new types of queries and workflows for clickstream, APM, supply chain, network telemetry, digital marketing, risk/fraud, and many other types of data. Druid is purpose built for rapid, ad-hoc queries on both real-time and historical data.

  • Mom at 54 is thinking about coding and a complete career shift. Thoughts?
    2 projects | /r/cscareerquestions | 18 Sep 2022
    Maybe rare for someone to be seeking their first coding job at that age. But plenty of us are in our 50s or older and still coding up a storm. And not necessarily ancient tech or anything. My current project exposes analytics data from Apache Druid and Cassandra via Go microservices hosted in K8s.
