Introduction to Apache Kafka as Event-Driven Open Source Streaming Platform

This session introduces Apache Kafka, an event-driven open source streaming platform. Apache Kafka goes far beyond scalable, high volume messaging. In addition, you can leverage Kafka Connect for integration and the Kafka Streams API for building lightweight stream processing microservices in autonomous teams. The open source Confluent Platform adds further components such as a KSQL, Schema Registry, REST Proxy, Clients for different programming languages and Connectors for different technologies and databases. Live Demos included.


Second Talk

Tobias Radtke

-This talk will be in German-

Es gibt viele Wege einen Kafka-Cluster mit Zookeeper in der AWS aufzusetzen. Dabei sind einige Dinge zu beachten: Versionhandling, Availibilty Zones, Verschlüsselung,...
In dieser Session betrachten wir einen möglichen Weg in die AWS. Wir sehen auf welche Stolpersteine wir gestoßen sind und wie wir diese beseitigen oder umgehen konnten.
