Let's kick off the group with a closer look at Apache Kafka:
"Apache Kafka is publish-subscribe messaging rethought as a distributed commit log."
Jim Wyatt from Pearson will be presenting, and he'll review what makes Kafka different than other messaging technologies, dig into some practical applications, and hopefully have time for some hacking. The goal is to have this be an interactive and engaging presentation, so please bring your thoughts and experience. Looking forward to kicking things off!
