About Talk #1:
Dominik Fries is CTO of the company Thinkport GmbH. He has been working extensively on enterprise projects with Apache Kafka and AWS/Azure. Most DAX-clients requested to use Terraform for deployment and automation. He will share some insights on how to deploy and manage a highly scalable Kafka Cluster with Terraform.
About Talk #2:
Organizations are rapidly moving to the cloud to solve their data storage and data analytics challenges while reducing time-to-insight is the primary driver for these business investments. When most enterprise data is still stored in on-premises silos, we need to build a streaming data pipeline to collect data changes in real-time, process it and feed it into the data analytics cloud service. In this talk, we will explore how Apache Kafka can be used to implement one that extracts data stored in third normal form from an RDBMS, streams it to the cloud and feeds it in a usable form into Google BigQuery.
We are looking forward to a great meetup!
