Gwen Shapira (Engineering Leader, Confluent), Ben Stopford (Senior Director, OCTO, Confluent), and Michael Noll (Principal Technologist, Confluent) meet up to talk all about their last five years at Confluent and the changes they’ve seen in event streaming. They discuss what they were doing with Apache Kafka® before they arrived at Confluent, challenges in event streaming challenges that have arisen, and their favorite use cases. They then talk through what they think the Kafka community is undervaluing and where they think event streaming will be in the next five years.
