Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Apache Kafka® Committer Matthias J. Sax explains fault tolerance, high-availability stream processing, and Kafka Streams. He explains the differences between changelogging and checkpointing, as well as making changes in Kafka versus hot standbys, explaining what qualifies nodes as a hot standby, why Kafka Streams doesn’t do watermarking, and finally, why Kafka Streams is a library and not infrastructure.
There are two primary industries within the Internet of Things (IoT): industrial IoT (IIoT) and consumer IoT (CIoT), both of which can benefit from the Kafka ecosystem, including Kafka Streams and Kafka Connect.. Kai Waehner shares example use cases where he’s seen IoT integration in action, specifically focusing on Walmart and its real-time customer integration using the Walmart app.
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.
Neil Buesing (Director of Real-Time Data, Object Partners) discusses what a day in his life looks like and how Kafka Streams helps analyze flight data.
Rishi Dhanaraj worked at Zenreach as an intern and took on a big pile of Python batch jobs, turning them into some really interesting Kafka Streams code. Listen in as he walks us through how he did it.
