Harnessing the Real-Time Web: Wordnik's Take on Words

A session at GigaOM's Structure:Data 2012

Thursday 22nd March, 2012

2:00pm to 2:20pm (EST)

We are moving to the next evolution of the consumer Web, the real-time web. As consumers demand a much more responsive and tactile experience with websites, the infrastructure powering these must also evolve. In this session, we look at Wordnik and how it has been able to shape its product proposition through utilizing technologies designed with responsiveness in mind. We also talk to them about the co-evolution of the real time web, real time big data streams and the NOSQL technologies needed to support these demands.
