Intro to Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams

Our latest meetup features Erik Schmiegelow, CEO at Hivemind Technologies, who presents a fantastic talk on ‘Intro to Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams’.

In this session, Erik gives an overview of Apache Kafka, explaining its architecture and design principles, giving us a better understanding of its benefits for stream oriented applications and event processing use cases.

He also walked us through Kafka Stream, showing us how it works and how well it integrates into Kafka when building message driven applications.
