First Talk

Speaker:
Viktor Gamov

Title:
What is Apache Kafka, and What is a Streaming Platform?

Abstract:
Streaming platforms have emerged as a popular, new trend, but what exactly is a streaming platform? Part messaging system, part Hadoop made fast, part fast ETL and scalable data integration, with Apache Kafka at the core, streaming platforms offer an entirely new perspective on managing the flow of data. This talk will explain what a streaming platform such as Apache Kafka is and some of the use cases and design patterns around its use—including several examples of where it is solving real business problems. New developments in this area such as KSQL will also be discussed.

Second Talk

Speakers:
Fred Oettinger & Vinay Narayana

Title:
The Kafka Journey at Wayfair

Abstract:
Kafka is the messaging platform of choice at Wayfair. Kafka went through an extraordinary growth at Wayfair over the last 2 years growing from 1 data center to 7. Attend this session to understand why Wayfair decided to implement Kafka, how our approach has evolved over time, configurations choices we made, some common issues, and touch on where we’re headed going forward. By breaking down our reasons and approach with Kafka, it will help describe some of the challenges we face, and provide color to the decisions we’ve made.
