Helping users be successful when it comes to using Apache Kafka® is a large part of Dani Traphagen’s role as a senior systems engineer at Confluent. Whether she’s advising companies on implementing parts of Kafka or rebuilding their systems entirely from the ground up, Dani is passionate about event-driven architecture and the way streaming data provides real-time insights on business activity.
She explains the concept of a stream, topic, key, and stream-table duality, and how each of these pieces relate to one another. When it comes to data modeling, Dani covers importance business requirements, including the need for a domain model, practicing domain-driven design principles, and bounded context. She also discusses the attributes of data modeling: time, source, key, header, metadata, and payload, in addition to exploring the significance of data governance and lineage and performing joins.
