Title: Apache Kafka, Stream Processing, and Microservices
Abstract: Microservices are rightfully associated with REST, but a lot of what a company does isn’t easily modeled by a blocking request and response. What is the right way to build this type of asynchronous service? This talk will show the relationship between this type of service and the emerging paradigm of stream processing, and will introduce Kafka's Streams API, a powerful distributed stream processing client that is part of Apache Kafka.
