This talk will focus on our experience at NewsWhip with the Kafka and Confluent ecosystem, particularly Kafka itself, Schema Registry/Avro, and Kafka Connect. ------ Speaker: Mic Hussey Bio: Mic is a Systems Engineer at Confluent, the company founded by the creators of Apache Kafka. He started out his career as a Civil Engineer in Dublin but fell into IT and moved to Stockholm at the height of the dot com boom. He's been architecting and building event based distributed systems for most of the time since, with a short detour into API Management along the way. Title: Apache Kafka and KSQL in Action : Let’s Build a Streaming Data Pipeline! Abstract: Hopefully you're already familiar with Apache Kafka - the massively scalable technology which allows you to build robust data pipelines. And have come across the plethora of Kafka Connectors that make it easy to join the ends of your data pipeline to other systems such as DBs or Big Data. But what do you do in the middle? Would you like to be able to transform, enrich and filter the data as it moves along the pipeline? Just break out your compiler! Only kidding, using KSQL it's possible to achieve all this without opening Eclipse at all.... -------- Don't forget to join our Community Slack Team ! If you would like to speak or host our next event please let us know! [masked] NOTE: We are unable to cater for any attendees under the age of 18. Please do not sign up for this event if you are under 18.
