Using Apache Kafka to Analyze Session Windows

Watch on demand

Recording Time: 31:05

Presenter: Michael Noll, Product Manager, Confluent 

For many industries the need to group together related events based on a period of activity or inactivity is key.  Advertising businesses, content producers are just a few examples of where session windows can be used to better understand user behavior.

While such sessionization has been possible in Apache Kafka up to this point, implementing it has been rather complex and required leveraging low-level APIs.  In the most recent release of Kafka, however, new capabilities have been added making session windows much easier to implement.

In this online talk, we’ll introduce the concept of a session window, talk about common use cases, and walk through how Apache Kafka can be used for session-oriented use cases.
