Introduction to KRaft and KIP-500

KRaft is the consensus protocol that was introduced to remove Apache Kafka’s dependency on ZooKeeper for metadata management (KIP-500). It addresses many urgent scalability and performance issues in Kafka and greatly simplifies the architecture. In this meetup, you will learn about the basic concept of Kraft and KIP-500.

Online Meetup Etiquette:
• Please hold your questions until the end of the presentation or use the zoom chat during!
• Please arrive on time as zoom meetings can become locked for many reasons (though if you get locked out a recording will be available, but you may have to wait a little while for it!)
Important note: If Zoom asks for a password to join please use 'kafka'

If you would like to speak or host our next event please let us know! [masked]
