Subject Re: open source projects based on kafka

Here's a toy project - analyzing twitter stream.

1) Create dev. account on twitter
2) Using your dev credentials, connect to twitter stream api to retrieve
stream of tweets
3) Store tweets in Kafka (using Kafka producer)
4) Retrieve tweets (using Kafka consumer)
5) For each tweet (or group of tweets), compute some analysis either using
custom java OR use storm/samza/spark.  e.g. country of origin of tweet,
sentiment analysis etc.

Its very simple to do this and should not take you more than 1-2 days to
implement.

Thanks
Manasvi
