The Stream — July 2022 edition

The July 2022 edition of The Stream: covering this month in stream processing on the internet.

Quix offers a pure Python framework for building real-time data pipelines. It's a Kafka client with a stream processing library rolled into one. No JVM, no cross-language debugging—just a simple Pandas-like API for handling streaming data. Deploy in your stack or on Quix Cloud for scalable, stateful, and fault tolerant stream processing.

At Quix, we’re thrilled to see the community around stream processing expanding so quickly. We genuinely believe that real-time data applications contribute to the development of new technologies that improve lives. But stream processing isn’t possible without the people building it and talking about it.

Quix is also growing. We’re bringing in more people to help us build a cutting-edge tool that allows clients to process telemetry data and deploy smart medical technology, to give only two examples.

Quix as a platform and a company has benefited immensely from the incredible work that comes when ambitious and kind people trust each other and have access to advanced technologies. You can’t be at the cutting edge without the right tools, a willingness to fail and a team that has your back.

If you’re excited to learn about, build or discuss stream processing, come work with us.

That enthusiasm is the most critical point. Live wherever you’d like and bring your whole self to work. We’re remote-first, with team members already living in the Czech Republic, Germany, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. We’re committed to valuing people as they are and celebrating what makes them who they are. We’re ready and eager to work with smart, empathetic people excited about stream processing, whoever and wherever they are.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
