Kafka Summit NYC Systems Track: What to Expect

In our previous post on the Streaming Pipelines track, we highlighted some of the sessions not to be missed at Kafka Summit NYC. As a follow on to that, let’s talk about the Systems track at the event. The Systems track was designed specifically for those who are looking to learn how to get the most out of Apache Kafka®. In this track, community and industry experts will share the latest and greatest Kafka features and best practices on how to run and scale Kafka in production. There’s a little something for everyone in this section of the agenda.

Speakers in this track come from companies like LinkedIn, Goldman Sachs, Confluent, Target, Pivotal and Heroku and will address the challenges they faced when running Kafka at scale, lessons learned, new features in Kafka they used and more. Don’t miss these thought-provoking sessions designed to inspire and guide you as you’re working with Kafka at your own organization.

Here are some of our notable sessions for this track:
