Xtreams

Xtreams is a new implementation of streams. Xtreams allow streaming over a wide range of sources and destinations, and performing “just-in-time” transformations by stacking streams on top of other streams (for example streaming directly over content of an encrypted, compressed, base-64 encoded message as it’s being received from a socket). This talk will introduce and discuss current state of Xtreams, demonstrating some of the design choices and capabilities. We would also like to engage the audience by solving some streaming problems together.
