Log Compaction | Highlights in the Kafka and Stream Processing Community | September 2015

Gwen Shapira

September is the start of the fall conference season. Between Strata + Hadoop World New York and ApacheCon: Big Data Europe, there is plenty to keep us busy learning.

Conferences can provide too many choices, and finding the most relevant and most exciting sessions can be a challenge. So I reviewed the Strata conference agenda and picked some of my favorites related to Apache Kafka and stream processing.

Strata + Hadoop World, New York – September 29 – October 1, 2015

Apache Kafka NYC Meetup at ADP Innovation Lab

In addition to all of the Strata sessions, there is the NYC Kafka meetup. You will not want miss Jay Kreps‘  talk about Stream Processing – trust me on this one. Gwen Shapira will present “When Bad Things Happen to Good Kafka Clusters” – war stories from using Kafka in production and how to avoid the same mistakes.

Strata + Hadoop World Expo Hall – Confluent Booth #929

Drop by to meet the Confluent team and chat about Apache Kafka, stream processing, and other geeky topics. Meet Jay Kreps and pick up a free signed copy of his book, I Heart Logson Wednesday, September 30 at 12:45pm. And for those of you that only care about Kafka swag, the booth will be stocked with stickers and t-shirts.

ApacheCon: Big Data Europe, September 28-30, 2015

Going at at the same time as Strata NYC, ApacheCon: Big Data Europe is taking place in Budapest, Hungary, from Sep 28-30.  This is a great opportunity to catch up with the Big Data and Apache Kafka open source communities, particularly for European users.  If you are going to Apache: Big Data, here are our recommendations:

Looking forward to meeting you at the conferences!
