Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Todd Palino talks about the start of Apache Kafka® at LinkedIn, what learning to use Kafka was like, how Kafka has changed, and what he and others in the community hope for in the future of Kafka.
Colin McCabe and Jason Gustafson discuss the history of Kafka, the creation of KIP-500, and the implications of removing ZooKeeper dependency and replacing it with a self-managed metadata quoroum.
Author Dylan Scott tells all about his upcoming Manning title Kafka in Action, which shares how Apache Kafka® can be used by beginners who are just starting out their own projects. It also dispels common Hadoop-related myths, as Kafka has grown to become a powerful event streaming platform beyond big data ecosystems alone.
Tim Berglund (Senior Director of Developer Experience, Confluent) explains the Kafka Improvement Proposals (KIPs) and what’s new in Apache Kafka 2.3.
Chris Riccomini tells us how Apache Kafka® and the stream processing framework Samza came about, and also what he’s doing these days at WePay—building systems that use Kafka as a primary datastore.
