During his tenure at Walmart, Suman Pattnaik, Director of Engineering at Walmart has built 2 of the applications that continue to play a critical role in customer satisfaction, using Kafka: real-time inventory and real-time replenishment systems.
Kafka is now a technology developers and architects are adopting with enthusiasm. And it’s often not just a good choice, but a technology enabling meaningful improvements in complex, evolvable systems that need to respond to the world in real time. But surely it’s possible to do wrong!
In this session we will discuss how Apache Kafka has become the de facto standard for event driven architecture, its community support and the scale at which some customers are running it.
We’ll discuss the challenges Storyblocks attempted to overcome with their monolithic apps and REST API architecture as the business grew rapidly, and the advantages they gained from using Confluent Event-driven architecture to power their mission-critical microservices.
