What we're about

**** Join our Slack Channel for live, global interaction! **** (https://slackpass.io/confluentcommunity)

This Meetup Group will focus on the Apache Kafka® technology and its ecosystem, also allowing its members to interact and share their use cases, do and don't, how to's, etc.

We will also hear about the Confluent Platform and topics like Kafka's Connect API and streaming data pipelines, Kafka’s Streams API and stream processing, Security, Microservices and anything else related to Apache Kafka.

If you want to hear about a particular topic please let us know and we will try to find the best possible speaker. We are also very open to this being an interactive platform for the community, so if you would like to participate in other ways like speaking, hosting, writing a blog, etc, please let us know on community@confluent.io

Workshop: Real-time SQL Stream Processing at Scale with Apache Kafka and KSQL

Together with our friends from the BruJUG we are happy to announce the below workshop by Robin Moffatt. Please make sure you RSVP in only ONE of the 2 sites so we avoid duplication in the numbers. Thank you! -------- Hi folks! This time, we are happy to propose you a workshop on Kafka and KSQL. Due to the nature to the event, seats are limited, and we encourage you to make sure you'll be able to attend before making your reservation. This event will be hosted by our sponsor Computer Futures that will also kindly offer some food to sustain you. Host/Instructor =============== Robin is a Developer Advocate at Confluent, the company founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka, as well as an Oracle Groundbreaker Ambassador and ACE Director (alumnus). His career has always involved data, from the old worlds of COBOL and DB2, through the worlds of Oracle and Hadoop, and into the current world with Kafka. His particular interests are analytics, systems architecture, performance testing and optimization. He blogs at http://cnfl.io/rmoff and http://rmoff.net/ (and previously http://ritt.md/rmoff) and can be found tweeting grumpy geek thoughts as @rmoff. Outside of work he enjoys drinking good beer and eating fried breakfasts, although generally not at the same time.
