Talks (sneak preview):

- 1. Kafka Streams: from pub/sub to a complete stream processing platform (by Paolo Castagna, Confluent)

- 2. Divolte, and a click-stream collection platform that we developed at GoDataDriven to support data-science at our clients. It has native support for Kafka to allow for real-time delivery of raw website click-streams. 3. Event evolution: how to think about and deal with event evolution over time with Kafka. Events change, and I plan to introduce some ways to think about this and offer some pragmatic advice (by Andrew Snare, GoDataDriven)

- 4. Devops from the trenches: a Kafka story (by Casper Koning, Data Engineer @ Codestar) Currently at Wehkamp, a platform is being developed that integrates and builds upon the in house microservice platform. In order to make integration successful, it is vital to have all components connected to the operational infrastructure, such as logging, dashboards and alerting. Casper will be talking about the setup @ Wehkamp, from a devops perspective. He will be talking about his personal good and bad experiences.
