Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Gaining trust in your product, process, and the way you develop code requires the ability to explain those things well. Kelsey Hightower reflects on the journey that brought him to where he is today and how Kubernetes has evolved over the years too, including what makes Kubernetes so successful.
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.
What is Knative and how does it simplify Kubernetes-related processes through seamless extension? Jacques Chester is publishing a book called “Knative in Action” that walks through the problems Knative is trying to solve, the relationship between Knative and serverless, and simplifying your Kubernetes cluster.
Lena Hall joins Tim Berglund in the studio to talk about Apache Kafka, the various ways to run Kafka on Microsoft Azure, Kafka on Kubernetes (K8s), and some exciting events that are happening in the Kafka world.
What are the maturing stages of Kubernetes adoption? How did Datadog experience these stages? Balthazar Rouberol explains what to think about before hopping on Kubernetes hype train.
