    Talk: Using Apache Iceberg in your modern data architecture
    Talk Summary: I will discuss Apache Iceberg and the benefits it provides in managing large amounts of data. I will also cover how Apache Iceberg can be part of your modern data architecture by bringing a range of capabilities to your data lake, including ACID transactions, schema evolution, time travel, and incremental processing. If time permitting a quick demo on Spark streaming using AWS Glue and Kafka, otherwise I can just cover it over a presentation.
    Speaker Bio: I have worked in a range of industries including education, property management, accounting, and auditing. As a cloud consultant, I’ve interacted with many stakeholders at various industry levels, ranging from startups, government agencies and enterprises. This has helped me to build an appreciation for learning and adapting to new environments, to develop an ability to work with different teams, and to interact with multiple stakeholders with different technical skills and different businesses objectives.
