Big & Fast Data at PayPal • Sid Anand • YOW! 2018

This presentation was recorded at YOW! 2018. #GOTOcon #YOW Sid Anand - Chief Architect & Head of Engineering at Datazoom ABSTRACT PayPal processes more than $1B in payments every day, is an accepted method of payment in over 200 countries, and covers everything in the online payments ecosystem from issuing credit and debit cards, to supporting credit card & POS processing, facilitating checkout at online merchants, and making it easy for friends to split a dinner bill or resolve shared expenses. All of this convenience comes with the added security of some of the most advanced fraud prevention algorithms powered by huge repositories of data. Given the vast ecosystem that PayPal has been playing in over the past 20 years, PayPal has collected large amounts of payment transaction and contextual data relating to consumers, merchants, and products -- over 150PB of data to be precise. How does PayPal manage this massive amount of data while all the while extracting useful insights that can propel the business ever forward? Come to this talk to find out!

In his spare time, he is a maintainer/committer on Apache Airflow, a co-chair for QCon, and a frequent speaker at conferences.
