At Xapix we build physical models and virtual simulators to explain use cases and applications to potential customers. This helps us to drive digitization in the German industry and Mittelstand. In this Kafka Meetup, we get hands-on and show how you can build an IIoT model with Kafka and Xapix on your own. Bio: Oliver is a software architect and senior Ruby on Rails developer. As an API, hypermedia, and Ruby enthusiast, he believes that plug & play APIs can easily fix the most complex business problems. He co-founded Xapix in 2015 to build a flexible and user-friendly platform that helps solve any data integration and orchestration challenge. It’s a preferred backend tool for connected vehicles and IIoT services. By bridging new and existing systems like APIs, it helps companies across the board to access, use, and monetize their data. ----- Online Meetup Etiquette: •Please unmute yourself when you have a question. •Please hold your questions until the end of the presentation or use the zoomchat! •Please arrive on time as zoom meetings can become locked for many reasons. ---- If you would like to speak or host our next event please let us know!
