  • 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

    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 | reddit.com/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.

  • Apache ShardingSphere Enterprise User Case — Energy Monster
    3 projects | dev.to | 6 Sep 2022
    The configuration items have 108 pieces of real tables in a database. According to the configuration of maxConnectionsizeperquery=50, ShardingSphere-JDBC uses the connection limit mode, divides the query requests into three groups, and merges the results with in-memory. As a result, 36 database connections are required for one query. But the maxActive configured by the druid thread pool is set to 20, resulting in a deadlock.
  • how do I store and process user interactions and footprint via DRF

    Personally I'd use Google Analytics or something else purpose-built for this, and avoid trying to reinvent the wheel. I don't know much about it, but Apache Druid is supposed to be for analytics data: https://druid.apache.org/
