The art and science of capacity planning Abstract: No matter if you are new to Apache Kafka or an experienced expert, capacity planning questions seem to show up at every step of the adoption journey. Architects and developers need to know how many topics, how many partitions, what are the right message sizes and how to plan to scale. Operations teams need to know how many brokers, which hardware and even how many clusters are required. In a short talk that will attempt to cover lots of ground, we’ll go over the basics of planning Kafka deployments. -------- Don’t forget to join our Community Slack Team ! If you would like to speak or host our next event please let us know! [masked] NOTE: We are unable to cater for any attendees under the age of 18. Please do not sign up for this event if you are under 18.

    What we're about

    This group is addressed to London Apache Kafka users. We welcome software engineers, systems architects, data scientists, software developers and anyone interested in Apache Kafka. This group is also addressed to people interested in advanced system architecture, real-time event streaming and the Internet of Things.

    Join this group if you would like to learn more about Apache Kafka and the technologies related. Also join if you'd like to share your current project experiences, hear about real life use cases, learn about best practices, how to tune your Kafka deployments and how to develop software that uses it.

    We organise quarterly events where community members will talk about their experiences or about specific technical aspects. Talks will be followed by networking.

    We hope these talks and networking events will make Apache Kafka London the place were the fast growing Kafka users community in London gets to know each other.
