This talk will give an overview of Apache Kafka and its role in building an ecosystem around event streams--from capturing database changes, to building event-driven microservices, to stream processing.

Jay Kreps is the co-founder and CEO of Confluent, the company behind the popular Apache Kafka streaming platform. Prior to founding Confluent, he was the lead architect for data infrastructure at LinkedIn. He is among the original authors of several open source projects including Project Voldemort (a key-value store), Apache Kafka (a distributed streaming platform) and Apache Samza (a stream processing system).
