Apache Kafka is a scalable streaming platform that forms a key part of the infrastructure at many companies including Uber, Netflix, Walmart, Airbnb, Goldman Sachs and LinkedIn. In this talk Matt will give a technical overview of Kafka, discuss some typical use cases (from surge pricing to fraud detection to web analytics) and show you how to use Kafka from within your C#/.NET applications.
Matt is a Software Engineer at Confluent where he works on Apache Kafka client libraries (including their recently released .NET client). Prior to joining Confluent he worked on materials tracking & optimization systems for large mining companies in Australia.
