Esper - Complex Event Processing
Esper is a component for complex event processing (CEP) and event series analysis, available for Java as Esper, and for .NET as NEsper.

Esper and NEsper enable rapid development of applications that process large volumes of incoming messages or events, regardless of whether incoming messages are historical or real-time in nature. Esper and NEsper filter and analyze events in various ways, and respond to conditions of interest.

Esper and Event Processing Language (EPL) provide a highly scalable, memory-efficient, in-memory computing, SQL-standard, minimal latency, real-time streaming-capable Big Data processing engine for historical data, or medium to high-velocity data and high-variety data.

Esper is not limited to running on a single machine and runs well inside a Storm bolt, or a Samza stream task and inside a Spark Streaming operator, for example. Esper makes sense and can run in any architecture and any container, as it has no dependencies on external services and does not require any particular threading model or model of how time advances and does not require any external storage.

The Minimum You Need To Know About Arrays and Slices in Golang
Most people who start to learn Go understand the concept of a slice. It's a lightweight wrapper around an array which can, but doesn't necessarily have to, represent a subset (or slice) of that underlying array. Despite this understanding, developers continue to get tripped up when putting that knowledge to practice. Why?

The following symbols are among those that we can recommend without qualification, meaning that you can assume that we would recommend any product that is legitimately certified by one of these agencies. If a symbol does not appear here it does not mean that we would not recommend any or all of the foods certified by that agency. In fact, you will find many products in our database that bear symbols that do not appear here, or that bear no symbol at all.

Shipping Culture Is Hurting Us
This isn’t bad advice. Quickly getting something in front of the people that will actually use it is a great idea. It means you waste less time building something they don’t actually want. But I look around the industry today and I get worried. Don’t get me wrong – I see brilliant people shipping brilliant, innovative software. But I also see a lot of us using half-baked technologies to shove half-assed software out the door.
