This time Zimpler (https://www.zimpler.com/) provides the venue. Old Agenda. First something to eat and drink. Then three presentations followed by opening the secret box that has arrived from Confluent. Agenda 17.30 - 18.00: Doors Open, registration, Zimpler offers you something to eat and drink. 18.00 - 18.10: Zimpler present themselves 18.10 - 18.30: Marco Admyre, The State of Kafka What’s new and improved since last meetup. 18.30 - 19.00: Christian Fredriksson, Tips, tricks, mistakes and lessons learned from introducing Kafka Three years ago Christian’s team started rebuilding and extending a complex system of older school enterprise applications at Volvo Cars. They threw out JMS, synchronous HTTP, and Oracle and brought in Kafka, asynchronous events and Cassandra. These are some of the tips, tricks, mistakes and lessons they have learned during this journey. 19.00 - 19.45 Robin Moffatt, Senior Developer Advocate, Confluent, An introduction to ksqlDB You've got streams of data that you want to process and store? You've got events from which you'd like to derive state or build aggregates? And you want to do all of this in ascalable and fault-tolerant manner? It's just as well that Kafka and ksqlDB exist! This talk will be built around a live demonstration of the concepts and capabilities of ksqlDB. We'll see how you can apply transformations to a stream of events from one Kafka topic to another. We'll use ksqlDB connectors to bring in data from other systems and use this to join and enrich streams—and we'll serve the results up directly to an application, without even needing an external data store. Attendees will learn: - How to process streams of events - The semantics of streams and tables, and of push and pull queries - How to use the ksqlDB API to get state directly from the materialised store - What makes ksqlDB elastically scalable and fault-tolerant. 19:45 - 20.15: Any additional lightning talks, whiteboard sessions, Q&A, and/or networking or anything else that pops up. 20.15 - Opening of surprise box from Confluent.
