Building Real-time Applications Using Apache Kafka: Architecture Considerations and a Practical Example
Amanda Gilbert, Senior Solutions Engineer, Confluent
Amanda Gilbert is a Senior Solutions Engineer for Confluent and a Confluent Cloud subject matter expert. She has been working in the data engineering space since graduating from college in 2014. She is passionate about building event-driven architectures that utilize existing technologies, limit technical debt, and create performant applications. Amanda lives in Charlotte, NC where she enjoys playing poker, hiking, traveling, and reading in her free time.
Building real-time applications using Kafka requires an architecture that both serves an API layer reliant on synchronous communication and benefits from real-time updates to the data layer.
In this session, we will discuss the architecture patterns for these event-driven applications, highlight common mistakes made when architecting real-time applications and look at a practical example using Kafka, ksqlDB, and Kafka Connect.
