Listen to Tim Berglund and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Synthesis Software Technologies, a Confluent partner, is migrating an existing behavioral IoT framework into Kafka to streamline and normalize vendor information. Nick Walker (Principle of Streaming) and Yoni Lew (DevOps Developer) of Synthesis discuss how they use Apache Kafka with the existing behavioral data that they collect.
When it comes to adopting event-driven architectures, a couple of key considerations often arise: the way that an asynchronous core interacts with external synchronous systems and the question of “how do I refactor my monolith into services?” Daniel Jagielski, a consultant working as a tech lead/dev manager at VirtusLab for Tesco, recounts how these very themes emerged in his work with European clients, specifically Tesco.
Spring Boot enables you to do more with less. Its features offer numerous benefits, making it easy to create standalone, production-grade Spring-based applications that you can just run. In this episode, Viktor Gamov (Developer Advocate, Confluent) joins Tim Berglund on this episode to talk all about Spring and Apache Kafka.
