Apache Kafka Ecosystem
Kafka Streams as Foundation for KSQL
Motivation for KSQL
Live Demo #1 – Intro to KSQL
Live Demo #2 - Clickstream Analysis
Building a User Defined Function (Example: Machine Learning)
The rapidly expanding world of stream processing can be daunting, with new concepts such as various types of time semantics, windowed aggregates, changelogs, and programming frameworks to master.
KSQL is an open-source, Apache 2.0 licensed streaming SQL engine on top of Apache Kafka which aims to simplify all this and make stream processing available to everyone. Even though it is simple to use, KSQL is built for mission-critical and scalable production deployments (using Kafka Streams under the hood).
Benefits of using KSQL include No coding required; no additional analytics cluster needed; streams and tables as first-class constructs; access to the rich Kafka ecosystem. This session introduces the concepts and architecture of KSQL. Use cases such as Streaming ETL, Real-Time Stream Monitoring or Anomaly Detection are discussed. A live demo shows how to setup and use KSQL quickly and easily on top of your Kafka ecosystem.
