Apache Kafka® and KSQL in Action

Apache Kafka<sup>®</sup> and KSQL in Action


Apache Kafka is a distributed, scalable, and fault-tolerant streaming platform, providing low-latency pub-sub messaging coupled with native storage and stream processing capabilities. Integrating Kafka with RDBMS, NoSQL and object stores is simple with the Kafka Connect API, which is part of Apache Kafka. KSQL is the open-source SQL streaming engine for Apache Kafka, and makes it possible to build stream processing applications at scale, written using a familiar SQL interface.

In this session, we’ll introduce Apache Kafka and discuss the concept of a Streaming Platform. From there, we'll explore how easy it is to stream data from a database such as MySQL into Kafka using CDC and Kafka Connect. In addition, we’ll use KSQL to filter, aggregate and join it to other data, and then stream this from Kafka out into multiple targets such as Elasticsearch and S3. All of this can be accomplished without a single line of code!

Intended audience: Technical - architects, developers, etc. No prior experience with Apache Kafka is required.
