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

How can an overgrown message bus be getting this much buzz? And can it possibly help solve everyday problems in the Enterprise? It can, because Kafka is merely the center of a rich streaming data platform that invites detailed exploration. In this talk, we’ll look at the entire streaming platform provided by Apache Kafka and the Confluent community components. Starting with a lonely key-value pair, we’ll build up topics, partitioning, replication, and low-level Producer and Consumer APIs. We’ll group consumers into elastically scalable, fault-tolerant application clusters, then layer on more sophisticated stream processing APIs like Kafka Streams and KSQL. We’ll help teams collaborate around data formats with schema management. We’ll integrate with legacy systems without writing custom code. By the time we’re done, the open-source project we thought was Big Data’s answer to message queues will have become an enterprise-grade streaming platform, all in 60 minutes. Bio: Robin is a Senior Developer Advocate at Confluent, the company founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka, as well as an Oracle ACE Director (Alumnus). He has been speaking at conferences since 2009 including QCon, Devoxx, Strata, Kafka Summit, and Øredev. You can find many of his talks online at http://rmoff.net/talks/, and his blog articles at http://cnfl.io/rmoff and http://rmoff.net/.
