At Strata Data Conference in September, David Mellor, VP and Chief Architect at Curriculum Associates, showed how the company creates real-time feedback loops for students and educators.

David covered how to build a real-time application with MemSQL, and how his team architected a combination of data workflows for actively updating data, such as student activity through online lessons and diagnostics. One workflow relies on in-memory processing to serve responses in under 200 milliseconds. The other workflow focuses on data that can be processed on scheduled intervals.
