Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Bernd Ruecker, a co-founder and the chief technologist at Camunda, talks through the company's journey, how he ended up in open source, and all things automation. Bernd also dives into dead letter topics in Kafka, software interacting with software, orchestration tension, and best practices for approaching challenges that pop up along the way. This episode will take you through a thorough introduction of the Komodo Cloud as well as Camunda’s Kafka connector.
Paul Rayner describes how the vast tooling in DDD enables developers to focus on the coding that really matters and makes systems more collaborative, taking into account three primary considerations: how to get better at collaborating, strategic design and understanding why design really matters, and modeling codes.
Yaroslav Tkachenko shares about how matchmaking services, microtransactions, and telemetry statistics all play a role in Activision’s challenging (but fun) event streaming use cases. Learn about how Activision ingests huge amounts of data, what the backend of their massive distributed system looks like, and the automated services involved for collecting data from each pipeline.
Stewart Bryson dispels misconceptions around what “streaming ETL” means, and explains why event streaming and event-driven architectures compel us to rethink old approaches.
When it comes to data modeling, Dani Traphagen 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.
