Title: How Kafka has Become the Nervous System of a Modern Data Architecture
Presented By: Cliff Gilmore(Confluent)
About the Presentation: From resilient and high scale messaging to a modern stream processing platform, Kafka has become the nervous system of a modern data architecture. Learn how the Kafka Streams API takes this to the next level by democratizing the development of streaming applications, along with the ability to build modern microservices in an event-driven and asynchronous architecture.
