This will be our first meetup in 2019! I hope you will enjoy these 2 talks by our Kafka enthusiasts.
Thanks to our sponsors, Capital One (venue), and Confluent (food/drinks)!
-- First talk --
Do Cross the Streams: Rethinking Stream Processing with KStreams and KSQL! - by Viktor Gamov
All things change constantly! And dealing with constantly changing data at low latency is pretty hard. It doesn’t need to be that way. Apache Kafka, the de facto standard open source distributed stream processing system. Many of us know Kafka’s architectural and pub/sub API particulars. But that doesn’t mean we’re equipped to build the kind of real-time streaming data systems that the next generation of business requirements are going to demand. We need to get on board with streams!
Viktor Gamov will introduce Kafka Streams and KSQL!
KSQL is an important recent addition to the Confluent Open Source platform that lets us build sophisticated stream processing systems with little to no code at all! They will talk about how to deploy stream processing applications and look at the actual working code that will bring your thinking about streaming data systems from the ancient history of batch processing into the current era of streaming data.
P.S. No prior knowledge of Kafka Streams, KSQL or Ghostbusters needed.
Viktor Gamov is a Developer Advocate at Confluent, the company that makes a streaming platform based on Apache Kafka.
