Kafka: The Must-Know Pub/Sub

Kafka is a "must know." It is the data backplane of the modern microservice architecture. It's now being used as the first persistence layer of microservices and for most data aggregation jobs. As such, Kafka has become an essential product in the microservice and big data world. This session is about getting started with Kafka. We will discuss what it is. What are the components? We will discuss the CLI tools. How to program a Producer and Consumer and some of the internal mechanics of Kafka so we can understand what makes Kafka tick.
