Not adobe and not google analytics - building a system that scales for web analytics

I will walk thru some hands on demos of a web analytics system and tracking pixel system designed to scale to 10,000 events / sec using technologies like: Kafka, Cassandra, Scala, Hive, Hadoop, etc. Talk about the key challenges including scale, data security for data in motion and at rest, using Public Key Encryption in the browser.
