  • Notes

Did you know that a team of 900 developers at Wix is using Apache Kafka® to maintain 1,500 microservices? Tim Berglund sits down with Natan Silnitsky (Backend Infrastructure Engineer, Wix) to talk all about how Wix benefits from using an event streaming platform. 

Wix (the website that’s made for building websites) is designing a platform that gives people the freedom to create, manage, and develop their web presence exactly the way they want as they look to move from synchronous to asynchronous messaging.
