Kafka In the Cloud: Why It’s 10x Better With Confluent | Get free eBook

Event-driven Applications with Kafka, Micronaut, and AWS Lambda

One of the great things about running applications in the cloud is that you only pay for the resources that you use. But that also makes it more important than ever for our applications to be resource-efficient. This becomes even more critical when we use serverless functions.

Micronaut is an application framework that provides dependency injection, developer productivity features, and excellent support for Apache Kafka. By performing dependency injection, AOP, and other productivity-enhancing magic at compile time, Micronaut allows us to build smaller, more efficient microservices and serverless functions.

In this session, we'll explore the ways that Apache Kafka and Micronaut work together to enable us to build fast, efficient, event-driven applications. Then we'll see it in action, using the AWS Lambda Sink Connector for Confluent Cloud.
