Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
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.
Tim Berglund is joined by Viktor Gamov (Developer Advocate, Confluent) to discuss various approaches to testing Kafka Streams applications.
Kafka Streams Engineer Guozhang Wang walks through the implementation of transactional messaging in Kafka in some detail, including the idempotent producer API, the transaction coordinator responsible for managing the transaction log and consumer configurations.
Apache Kafka 2.1 featured an interesting change to the table API—commonly known to the world as KIP-328—that gives you better control over how updates to tables are emitted into destination topics. Join John Roesler for a clear explanation of it.
