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 Confluent Platform adds further components such as a Schema Registry, REST Proxy, KSQL, Clients for different programming languages and Connectors for different technologies.
The session discusses how tech giants like LinkedIn, Ebay or Airbnb leverage Apache Kafka as event streaming platform to solve various different business problems and how to create a scalable, flexible microservice architecture. A live demo shows how you can easily process and analyze streams of events using Apache Kafka and KSQL.
