Empowering Streams through KSQL: A Confluent Online Talk Series

Watch Now

Overview

KSQL, a modern-day streaming SQL engine for Apache Kafka, serves as the easiest way to enable continuous, interactive queries without requiring any Java or Python knowledge. Now all Apache Kafka users can gain insight into data—whether you’re a developer or member of an operations team.

This three-part series will help you go from understanding KSQL to using it effectively. It will cover the ins and outs behind how KSQL works so that you can accomplish monitoring, security and anomaly detection, online data integration, application development, streaming ETL and more.

We also have an alternative version of the series broadcasted in GMT.


Part 1: Exploring KSQL Patterns

This session covers the patterns and techniques of using KSQL. Tim Berglund discusses the various building blocks that you can use in your own applications, starting with the language syntax itself and covering how and when to use its powerful capabilities like a pro.
