Title of Talk:
On Track with Apache Kafka®: Building a Streaming ETL solution with Rail Data - Robin Moffatt, Developer Advocate, Confluent
Want to know what you can REALLY do with Apache Kafka once you get going? This talk will show off lots of integration and stream processing techniques. What started out as a fun project integrating live streams of updates of UK rail data turned into a full-blown data platform, with integration from ActiveMQ and S3, through KSQL and stream processing for joins and decoding, into various targets including analytics on S3, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, and graph analysis on Neo4j. Also using Kafka compacted topics to demonstrate the theory of stream/table to store configuration to drive real-time alerts delivered through Telegram. This talk will be a curated walk-through of the specifics of how I built the system, and code samples of the salient integration points in KSQL and Kafka Connect. The data may be domain-specific but the challenges of handling batch and stream data to drive both applications and analytics are encountered by many, and this talk will give people lots of concrete examples on how to do it.
Robin is a Developer Advocate at Confluent, as well as an Oracle Groundbreaker Ambassador. 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 can be found tweeting grumpy geek thoughts as https://twitter.com/rmoff. Outside of work he enjoys drinking good beer and eating fried breakfasts, although generally not at the same time.
