Links of the day 18 - 02 - 2015

Today's links 18/02/2015: Packet Sender and #Bigdata : Stream processing , Probabilistic methods, PCA
  • Stream Processing and Probabilistic Methods: great introduction on how you can leverage probabilistic methods ( hyperloglog, blom filter, etc..) to handle data at scale
  • Making sense of stream processing : excellent talk by Martin Kleppmann on how event streams can help make your application more scalable, more reliable and more maintainable. [transcript]
  • Packet Sender : open source utility to allow sending and receiving TCP and UDP packets. Really practical when you need to debug network protocols.
  • PCA : Principal component analysis (PCA) is a technique used to emphasize variation and bring out strong patterns in a dataset. It's often used to make data easy to explore and visualize.
