Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
James Urquhart (Global Field CTO, VMware) is writing a book about worldly mapping and evaluating user needs in order to make event streaming a more economic choice for users. James argues that reducing the cost of integration does not deter people from buying but instead encourages creativity to find more uses for integration.
There’s something about YAML and the word “Docker” that doesn’t sit well with Viktor Gamov (Developer Advocate, Confluent), but Kafka Streams on Kubernetes is a phrase that does. Viktor describes what that process looks like and how Jib helps build, test, and deploy Kafka Streams applications on Kubernetes for an improved DevOps experience.
Coming from decades of experience in messaging, Dan Rosanova discusses the pros and cons of cloud event streaming services on GCP, Azure, and Confluent Cloud. He also compares major stream processing and messaging services: Cloud Pub/Sub vs. Azure vs. Confluent Cloud, and outlines major differences among them.
Kent Beck chats about various topics of broad interest to developers, including some of his books. He shares about what it’s like to experiment and implement new ideas, especially when others doubt what you're trying to achieve, as well as the difference between refactoring and tidying, his involvement with agile software and test-driven development, and what exactly test-commit-revert is. And yes, Kent talks a little bit about event streaming too!
Ask Confluent is back! Gwen and Tim talk through how to submit a proposal and get accepted to conferences, the secret for a long marriage, REST Proxy, and how Kafka relates to Splunk. For those who have just started integrating Kafka, Tim and Gwen provide pointers about how to go about understanding it.
