What we're about

This Meetup Group will focus on the Apache Kafka® technology and its ecosystem, also allowing its members to interact and share their use cases, dos and don’ts, how tos, etc.

We will also hear about the Confluent Platform, Confluent Cloud and topics like Kafka’s Connect API and streaming data pipelines, ksqlDB, Kafka’s Streams API and stream processing, Security, Microservices and anything else related to Apache Kafka®.

If you’re new to Kafka, get a quick intro and then find all the resources you’ll need to continue your development at http://bit.ly/Confluent-Developer-io

We want this to be an active platform for the community, so if you would like to participate by speaking, hosting, etc, please let us know on community@confluent.io

Practical Data Mesh with Event Streams

Adam Bellemare - Staff Technologist, Office of the CTO

Adam Bellemare is a Staff Technologist at Confluent, and formerly a data platform engineer at Shopify, Flipp, and BlackBerry. He has been working in the data space for over a decade, with a successful history in big-data architecture, event-driven microservices, and building streaming data in an organization. He is also the author of the O'Reilly title "Building Event-Driven Microservices".

The Data Mesh Architecture is a set of social and technological principles for designing modern data architectures. By promoting data to a first-class product, we streamline how teams produce, share, and use essential business data. Event streams make an ideal basis for data products, providing near-real-time scalable access accessible for the entire business.

In this meetup, we will cover the following:

  • The principles of data mesh and event-driven data products
  • The social and technical challenges and solutions for building your own data products
  • A reference prototype showcasing the implementation of Data Mesh, based on Confluent Cloud
