Who is the best?
To answer this question once and for all we created a tool with which we can track scores, rankings and statistics. Why you might ask, it is simple, playing kicker, foosball or töggele is in our DNA. So is creating awesome tools with awesome components.
Kafka, especially integrated in Confluent Cloud, is one such component. Join us when we explain how we built a small utility to track games that we completely overengineered by using Kafka, KSQL, Quarkus and other fancy components. No matter what we tell others, we did it for fun. However, there are some real learnings we want to share that will help with building real-world streaming applications.
