Although events are the lifeblood of many data teams, event collection can be challenging and costly at scale. To enable scalable event collection while minimizing operational complexity, Jake Thomas, the Lead Data Platform Engineer at 6 River Systems, has released Honeypot. Honeypot, which is used to collect, validate, and route events, can be implemented alongside technologies like Redpant, Kowl, and Materialize to develop an end-to-end real-time event collection, pipelining, and aggregation system.
