Title of Talk:
Orchestrate Apache Kafka® on Kubernetes

Many organisations have adopted micro- services architectures to evolve their systems away from the slow and unresponsive shared-state architectures of the past. Apache Kafka is often chosen to be the backbone for these event driven services.
While the main drivers for adopting micro-services architectures are to improve speed and agility for the development of applications, it also inherently increases operational complexity due to its distributed nature. To deal with that, many have encountered the need for systems that help automate and manage their micro-services deployment; adopting container technologies like Docker and orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes along the way.

Speaker 2:
Vladimir Elvov / Simone Arena, Sky

Title of Talk:
Reading Kafka in the trenches

Kafka is an essential part of our Big Data architecture. In this talk Vladimir explains how we use Kafka for real time customer journeys and we share some insights on how to fix Sink connectors. In a hands-on session Simone will then show how we migrated Kafka Connect to Kubernetes.
