Kiba 2 - Past, present & future of data processing with Ruby

Kiba ETL ( is a lightweight, generic data processing framework for Ruby, initially released in 2015 & now in v2.

In this talk, I'll highlight why Kiba was created, how it is used for low-maintenance data preparation and processing in the enterprise (illustrated by many different use cases), why and how the version 2 (leveraging Ruby's Enumerator) brings a massive improvement in authoring reusable & composable data processing components, and why I'm optimistic about the future of data processing with Ruby.
