Let's talk Kafka Streams


Look Ma, no Code! Building Streaming Data Pipelines with Apache Kafka, Robin Moffatt, Technology Evangelist, Confluent

Companies new and old are all recognising the importance of a low-latency, scalable, fault-tolerant data backbone, in the form of the Apache Kafka streaming platform. With Kafka, developers can integrate multiple sources and systems, which enables low latency analytics, event driven architectures and the population of multiple downstream systems. These data pipelines can be built using configuration alone.

In this talk, we'll see how easy it is to stream data from a database such as Oracle into Kafka using the Kafka Connect API. In addition, we'll use KSQL to filter, aggregate and join it to other data, and then stream this from Kafka out into multiple targets such as Elasticsearch and MySQL. All of this can be accomplished without a single line of code!

Why should Java geeks have all the fun?

Highly Scalable Machine Learning in Real Time with Apache Kafka’s Streams API, Kai Wähner, Technology Evangelist, Confluent

Intelligent real time applications are a game changer in any industry. This session explains how companies from different industries build intelligent real time applications. The first part of this session explains how to build analytic models with R, Python or Scala leveraging open source machine learning / deep learning frameworks like TensorFlow or H2O. The second part discusses the deployment of these built analytic models to your own applications or microservices by leveraging the Apache Kafka cluster and Kafka’s Streams API instead of setting up a new, complex stream processing cluster. The session focuses on live demos and teaches lessons learned for executing analytic models in a highly scalable, mission-critical and performant way.
