Announcing the 2017 Kafka Summits!

Neha Narkhede

This year, we were pleased to host the inaugural Kafka Summit, the first global summit for the Apache Kafka community. Kafka Summit 2016 contributed valuable content to help Kafka users share their experiences using the technology as well as for the community to learn from creators of several other stream processing systems that integrate with Kafka. To see some of the top sessions, check out this curated list.

Now, we have some big news to share.

For next year, I’m very excited to announce two Kafka Summits – in New York City and San Francisco – to further support the growing Apache Kafka community and share the latest and greatest in stream processing. The conferences will bring together stream processing experts, open source innovators and Kafka enthusiasts to discuss the future of streaming data as well as real-world examples of companies that are successfully getting business value from their streaming data pipelines. Many of my fellow Apache Kafka committers will join me in attendance to answer questions and discuss the road ahead for Kafka.

Here are the dates and locations – mark your calendars!
