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®.
Our friends at the DataOps Polska group will be hosting an online meetup Tuesday, August 4th with our very own Robin Mofffatt, Senior Developer Advocate at Confluent.
You can find the registration link and agenda for the meetup below.

Title of Talk:
Apache Kafka and ksqlDB in Action: Let's Build a Streaming Data Pipeline!
Have you ever thought that you needed to be a programmer to do stream processing and build streaming data pipelines? Think again!
Apache Kafka is a distributed, scalable, and fault-tolerant streaming platform, providing low-latency pub-sub messaging coupled with native storage and stream processing capabilities. Integrating Kafka with RDBMS, NoSQL, and object stores is simple with Kafka Connect, which is part of Apache Kafka. ksqlDB is the event streaming database for Apache Kafka, and makes it possible to build stream processing applications at scale, written using a familiar SQL interface.
In this talk, we’ll explain the architectural reasoning for Apache Kafka and the benefits of real-time integration, and we’ll build a streaming data pipeline using nothing but our bare hands, Kafka Connect, and ksqlDB.
Gasp as we filter events in real-time! Be amazed at how we can enrich streams of data with data from RDBMS! Be astonished at the power of streaming aggregates for anomaly detection!
