More than ever, Apache Kafka® has become the de-facto place to capture real-time data. But once you’ve stored it, what will you do with it next?
Stream processing is a nascent style of programming that helps you take action on your data as soon as it’s available. It’s an incredibly powerful mode of computing—but all that power brings new concepts to be learned.
In this talk, we’ll step through the basics of stream processing through ksqlDB, a Kafka-native, SQL-based stream processor. You’ll learn about its core abstractions, how it works, and how you can use it to build modern data pipelines.
