Do you hear buzzwords like “SMACK” and see data analytics become a trending topic, but you’re still wondering how either of these things can help your software get to the next level?

Join ObjectFrontier and Heroku engineers at STATS in Atlanta for great beer, great food, and a demonstration of how SMACK (Spark, Mesos, Akka, Cassandra and Kafka) can help you harness the power of your data.

  • Meet the challenges and limitations of implementing SMACK
  • Follow best practices while adopting a SMACK stack
