About the talk:
Detecting Online Credit Card Fraud with Apache Kafka Streams

Apache Kafka is a distributed, real-time streaming platform in use at many large companies. Kafka's publish-subscribe streaming model allows companies to move from a request/response pattern of accessing data to an event-driven pattern.

The Kafka Streams library provides useful stream operations such as time-based windows, aggregate functions and joining to reference data. This allows for simple creation of microservices that perform complex processing on streams of data.

This presentation will give an overview of Kafka and Kafka Streams and show how they can be applied to the problem of online credit card fraud detection.
