Jun Rao, Co-Creator of Apache® Kafka & Co-Founder, Confluent & Russell Nash, Google Cloud

We invite you to join Jun Rao, Co-Creator of Apache Kafka® and Co-Founder of Confluent and Russell Nash, Customer Engineer at Google Cloud and your peers for an Innovation Breakfast and Town Hall session on Apache Kafka® & Event Streaming on Thursday November 21st, 2019.

In today's digital age, events are everywhere. Every digital action - across online purchases to ride-sharing requests to bank deposits - creates a set of events around transaction amount, transaction time, user location, account balance, and much more. Event streaming solves the fundamental business problem of re-conceptualising data as a continually updating stream of events, not as discrete snapshots. With this new paradigm, organisations can develop a new category of event-driven applications built around real-time actions with historical context, and gain a universal pipeline for real-time as well as historical events.

As a co-creator of Apache Kafka and co-founder at Confluent, Jun Rao will share:

  • his story on the history of Kafka and how it was started at LinkedIn
  • the problems it solves and how it’s evolving
  • use case across different vertical industries
  • the future of Apache Kafka

Russell Nash, Customer Engineer, will outline Google Cloud’s partnership with Confluent and commitment to the broader open source software initiative together with an overview of its data analytics offerings.

Confluent is Google’s recommended managed Kafka service. Confluent, founded by the creators of Apache Kafka®, provides a streaming platform that enables companies to process data as real-time streams, where they can act on it immediately.

  • BigQuery, GCS, Spanner, DataProc
