Dominique Rondé – Big Data Pilot

Fast – Faster – KSQL: Why do we need fast decissions and how do we get them

Dominique Rondé is a big data pilot and an employee of the digital insurance startup freeyou. He works with all sorts of technologies around the topic of “big data”. However, most of the “flight hours” he has collected on Confluent Kafka, the HortonWorks suite and DataStax Cassanda. In everyday life, he also deals with the possibilities of statistical analysis – in short, data science. As a true java nerd since 2002, he programs most of the jobs himself and runs them on cloud architectures.

Previously he was known as trivago’s very own software architecture rebel, where he worked on almost every moveable software part in PHP, Java and Kotlin, CI/CD, and hybrid cloud.
