Building distributed systems is challenging. Luckily, Apache Kafka provides a powerful toolkit for putting together big services as a set of scalable, decoupled components. In this talk, I'll describe some of the design tradeoffs when building microservices, and how Kafka's powerful abstractions can help. I'll also talk a little bit about what the community has been up to with Kafka Streams, Kafka Connect, and exactly-once semantics.
