Book this date on your calendar. The topic of our first meetup in 2019 is "Using Apache Cassandra and Apache Kafka to scale next gen applications" by Ben Slater Chief Product Officer at Instaclustr.

Adoption of open source software (OSS) at the enterprise level has flourished, as more businesses discover the considerable advantages that open source solutions hold over their proprietary counterparts, and as the enterprise mentality around open source continues to shift. We will discuss how to identify good application candidates for Apache Cassandra and Kafka as well as best practices and common pitfalls.

In this Meetup we'll also cover;
- The origins of Apache Cassandra and Kafka and how these technologies have come to shape how next gen applications are built.
- Production use cases of Cassandra and Kafka: Real time payments and buying a house
- Core concepts that make the magic; Explaining the technical attributes that make your project a good fit for these technologies and the architectural patterns that make best use of its capability.
