Kafka Summit San Francisco

Discover the World of Streaming Data

As streaming platforms become central to data strategies, companies both small and large are re-thinking their architecture with real-time context at the forefront. Monoliths are evolving into Microservices. Data-centers are moving to the cloud. What was once a ‘batch’ mindset is quickly being replaced with stream processing as the demands of the business impose more and more real-time requirements on developers and architects.

This revolution is transforming industries. What started at companies like LinkedIn, Uber, Netflix and Yelp has made its way to countless others in a variety of sectors. Today, thousands of companies across the globe build their businesses on top of Apache Kafka®. The developers responsible for this revolution need a place to share their experiences on this journey.

Kafka Summit is the premier event for data architects, engineers, devops professionals, and developers who want to learn about streaming data. It brings the Apache Kafka community together to share best practices, write code, and discuss the future of streaming technologies.

Welcome to Kafka Summit San Francisco!

Apache Kafka is a de facto standard streaming data processing platform, being widely deployed as a messaging system, and having a robust data integration framework (Kafka Connect) and stream processing API (Kafka Streams) to meet the needs that common attend real-time message processing. But there’s more! Kafka now offers KSQL, a declarative, SQL-like stream processing language that lets you define powerful stream-processing applications easily. What once took some moderately sophisticated Java code can now be done at the command line with a familiar and eminently approachable syntax. Come to this talk for an overview of KSQL with live coding on live streaming data.

Event Details
Speaker: Viktor Gamov, Solutions Architect, ConfluentSession: Kubernetes Operator in Go in One Hour [DEV5444]

Deploying and operating complex applications is not always trivial with standard Kubernetes tools. Kubernetes deployments can handle the situation when an application may need the least number of instances. But for more complex scenarios, autoscaling and reconfiguration, we need the ability to react to these events and perform necessary actions. Carrying out this task by implementing scripts with command-line tools can get cumbersome, especially as we get closer to real-life use cases in which we have to deal with resilience, log collection, and monitoring. This session takes a look at the Kubernetes Operator SDK and shows how to write an operator in Go. The operator will enable seamless monitoring of Java applications running in containers.

Speaker: Viktor Gamov, Solutions Architect, ConfluentSession: Cloud-Native Streaming Platform: Apache Kafka Meets Kubernetes [DEV5243]

When the time comes to choose a distributed streaming platform for real-time data pipelines, everyone knows the answer: Apache Kafka®. And when it comes to deploying real-time stream processing applications at scale without having to integrate some different pieces of infrastructure yourself? The answer is Kubernetes. This session discusses best practices for running Apache Kafka and other components of a streaming platform such as Kafka Connect and Schema Registry as well as stream processing apps on Kubernetes. It covers the challenges and lessons learned from developing the Confluent Operator for Kubernetes as well as different custom deployments on various Kubernetes installations​.

Speaker: Baruch Sadogursky, Developer Advocate, JFrog
Speaker: Viktor Gamov, Solutions Architect, Confluent
Session: Fight Crime with Kafka Streams and the Bintray Firehose API [DEV5246]

Can you find a malicious activity needle in the haystack of events on one of the busiest distribution hubs in the world? Processing the streaming events from the Bintray Firehose API with Kafka Streams can give you the superpower to do that. This session shows a real-life example of using Apache Kafka® KSQL to process and parse huge amounts of data to identify a worrying trend that might be a sign of a malicious activity.

Speaker: Antony Stubbs, Consultant Solutions Architect, ConfluentSession: Beyond the DSL—Unlocking the power of Kafka Streams with the Processor APIRoom: BallroomTuesday, 23 October, 12:20 - 13:10

Kafka Streams is a flexible and powerful framework. The domain-specific language (DSL) is an obvious place from which to start, but not all requirements fit the DSL model.

Many people are unaware of the processor API (PAPI)—or are intimidated by it because of sinks, sources, edges and stores—oh my! But most of the power of the PAPI can be leveraged, simply through the DSL `#process` method, which lets you attach the general building block `Processor` interface to your easy-to-use DSL topology, to combine the best of both worlds.

In this talk you'll get a look at the flexibility of the DSL's process method and the possibilities it opens up. We'll use real world use cases borne from extensive experience in the field with multiple customers to explore power of direct write access to the state stores and how to perform range sub-selects. We'll also see the options that punctuators bring to the table, as well as opportunities for major latency optimizations.

Key takeaways:

    Understanding of how to combine DSL and processors
    Capabilities and benefits of processors
    Real-world uses of processors

9:00pm: end

Speaker: Bernd Rücker, Co-Founder CamundaSession: The Big Picture: Monitoring and Orchestration of Your Microservices Landscape with Kafka and Zeebe

A company’s business processes typically span more than one microservice. In an e-commerce company, for example, a customer order might involve microservices for payments, inventory, shipping and more. Implementing long-running, asynchronous and complex collaboration of distributed microservices is challenging. How can we ensure visibility of cross-microservice flows and provide status and error monitoring? How do we guarantee that overall flows always complete, even if single services fail? Or, how do we at least recognize stuck flows so that we can fix them? In this talk, I’ll demonstrate an approach based on real-life projects using the open source workflow engine zeebe.io to orchestrate microservices. Zeebe can connect to Kafka to coordinate workflows that span many microservices, providing end-to-end process visibility without violating the principles of loose coupling and service independence. Once an orchestration flow starts, Zeebe ensures that it is eventually carried out, retrying steps upon failure. In a Kafka architecture, Zeebe can easily produce events (or commands) and subscribe to events that will be correlated to workflows. Along the way, Zeebe facilitates monitoring and visibility into the progress and status of orchestration flows. Internally, Zeebe works as a distributed, event-driven and event-sourced system, making it not only very fast but horizontally scalable and fault tolerant—and able to handle the throughput required to operate alongside Kafka in a microservices architecture. Expect not only slides but also fun little live-hacking sessions and real-life stories.

Speaker: Igor Buzatović, Sofware Architect Inovativni trendovi d.o.o.Session: Developing scalable, cluster ready applications is easier with Apache Kafka yes!

For many server side applications built today, scalability and high availability is "must have" requirement. Achieving horizontal scalability is not a trivial task. We are entering "distributed computing" zone, where we have to orchestrate multiple instances of application or it's modules to work as one system. Apache Kafka can help a lot, handling big part of that orchestration, allowing us to write less (and cleaner) application code. In this talk, we will examine some use cases which demonstrate that.

Speaker: Ivan Turčinović, Technical lead for software development in Inovativni trendovi d.o.oSession: Monitoring Kafka

Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform. You can have 3 to hundreds of Kafka Broker nodes in you cluster. In such distributed environment, to be aware of health of your cluster and to be able to reacts quickly on outages is really important. That's where monitoring comes in. In this presentation we will go through most important parts when it comes to monitoring Apache Kafka systems.

Speaker: Robin Moffatt, Developer Advocate, ConfluentSession: Apache Kafka and KSQL in Action: Let’s Build a Streaming Data Pipeline!

Have you ever thought that you needed to be a programmer to do stream processing and build streaming data pipelines? Think again!

Apache Kafka® is a distributed, scalable and fault-tolerant streaming platform, providing low-latency pub-sub messaging coupled with native storage and stream processing capabilities. Integrating Kafka with RDBMS, NoSQL, and object stores is simple with the Kafka Connect API, which is part of Apache Kafka. KSQL is the open source SQL streaming engine for Apache Kafka and makes it possible to build stream processing applications at scale, written using a familiar SQL interface.

In this talk we’ll explain the architectural reasoning for Apache Kafka and the benefits of real-time integration, and we’ll build a streaming data pipeline using nothing but our bare hands, the Kafka Connect API and KSQL.

Gasp as we filter events in real time! Be amazed at how we can enrich streams of data with data from RDBMS! Be astonished at the power of streaming aggregates for anomaly detection!

This will be a practical talk, after which attendees will have a clear idea of the power of stream processing and how to get started with it using the open source Apache Kafka and KSQL projects.

Robin is a developer advocate at Confluent, as well as an Oracle ACE director and developer champion. His career has always involved data, from the old worlds of COBOL and DB2, through the worlds of Oracle and Hadoop and into the current world with Kafka. His particular interests are analytics, systems architecture, performance testing and optimization.

O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference

Event Details
Speaker: Benjamin Stopford, Technologist, Office of the CTO, ConfluentSession: Event Streaming as a Source of TruthRoom: King's Suite - BalmoralTuesday, 30 October, 15:50 - 16:40

One of the most interesting and provocative patterns to face the software architecture community is the use of event streaming as a source of truth. A pattern where replayable logs, like Apache Kafka®, are used for both communication as well as event storage, incorporating the retentive properties of a database in a system designed to share data across many teams, clouds and geographies.

This is a concept Ben Stopford believes to be transformative. Such a bold claim should of course be met with a healthy degree of skepticism, but the interesting thing about communication patterns is that their value comes from often subtle, systemic effects, particularly where humans are involved. You will be familiar with these already: email, Twitter, Slack and Facebook are all conceptually similar forms of communication, but display very different dynamics in practice, yet zeroing in on exactly why these tools operate and feel so different is rarely as simple as it may seem.

So, in this talk Ben explores not only the event streaming pattern but also the systemic effects it has on the architectures we build around it, digging into where the value really lies. He examines the relationship between events, event sourcing and stream processing, leading the audience to the idea of a database unbundled, or turned inside out. He also explores how the pattern encourages subtler systemic effects: easier evolution, a more ephemeral view on data and systems that seamlessly span departments, cloud providers and geographies.

Ben Stopford is a technologist at Confluent (the company behind Apache Kafka), where he has worked on a wide range of projects, from implementing the latest version of Kafka’s replication protocol through to developing strategies for streaming applications. Before Confluent, Ben led the design and build of a company-wide data platform for a large financial institution, as well as working on a number of early service-oriented systems, both in finance and at ThoughtWorks. He is the author of the book “Designing Event Driven Systems,” O’Reilly, 2018.

Crunch Conference

Speaker: Tim Berglund, Senior Director of Developer Experience, ConfluentSession: Kafka as a Platform: The Ecosystem from the Ground Up

Apache Kafka® has become a key data infrastructure technology, and we all have at least a vague sense that it is a messaging system, but what else is it? How can an overgrown message bus be getting this much buzz? Well, because Kafka is merely the center of a rich streaming data platform that invites detailed exploration.

In this talk, we’ll look at the entire open source streaming platform provided by the Apache Kafka and Confluent Open Source projects. Starting with a lonely key-value pair, we’ll build up topics, partitioning, replication and low-level producer and consumer APIs. We’ll group consumers into elastically scalable, fault-tolerant application clusters, then layer on more sophisticated stream processing APIs like Kafka Streams and KSQL. We’ll help teams collaborate around data formats with schema management. We’ll integrate with legacy systems without writing custom code. By the time we’re done, the open source project we thought was big data’s answer to message queues will have become an enterprise-grade streaming platform.

Tim Berglund is a teacher, author and technology leader with Confluent. He can frequently be found at speaking at conferences in the U.S. and all over the world. He is the co-presenter of various O’Reilly training videos on topics ranging from Git to distributed systems, and is the author of "Gradle Beyond the Basics."

Devoxx Belgium 2018

Speaker: Ben Stopford, Technologist, Office of the CTO, ConfluentSession: Streaming Data for the Cloud Native Generation

Microservices taught us to build applications with fine-grained, replaceable components. Lambdas teach us to chains simple event-driven functions. But both these paradigms have one common problem: handling data. One of the most interesting and provocative ideas to arise from the stream processing community is the use of event streams, which are sewn together with a streaming layer like KSQL and pushed into functions, services, caches or databases.

In this talk we’ll explore the use of event streams as a source of truth, examining the relationship between events, event sourcing, stream processing and functions. We’ll look at how events can be captured, streamed and processed natively. How transactions give us the ability to perform complex manipulations before they hit our business logic, pushing this model out over different data centres and clouds. We’ll also examine the subtler, systemic effects that the pattern leads to: better autonomy, easier evolution and a more ephemeral approach to data.

Ben is a technologist in the Office of the CTO at Confluent Inc. (the company behind Apache Kafka®). He's works on a wide range of projects, from implementing the latest version of Kafka’s replication protocol through to writing a book on event-driven systems. Before Confluent Ben led the design and build of a company-wide data service in a large financial services firm. His earlier career spanned projects at ThoughtWorks and U.K.-based enterprise companies. He is the author of the book “Designing Event Driven Systems”, O’Reilly, 2018.
