It was a slow news weekend, but there are plenty of good development posts. First, On DZone we get the logic behind various types of transactions.

Confluent announced the availability of Kafka Connect, enabling you to build large-scale, low-latency data pipelines. Google’s Big Data blog gives us an interesting look at the history of massive-scale sorting experiments. This is a peek into the types of scale problems and solutions that Google tends to deal with.
