What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Kafka® is used for building real-time data pipelines and streaming apps. It is horizontally scalable, fault-tolerant, wicked fast. In this presentation we’ll learn about Kafka consumers and producers as well as Kafka streams. We’ll build an application using Kafka and talk about different problems which may have a Kafka solution. For example, event/messaging bus, integration platform, and data migration are all problems with potential Kafka solutions. Finally, we’ll address the age old conundrum: “I had a problem and solved it with Kafka. Now I have two problems.” About Brian Lanham: After serving as a nuclear-qualified electrician for six years in the United States Navy, Brian earned a Computer Science degree from Penn State University.
