Kafka’s New Architecture | Kafka Summit 2020 Keynote

Let's begin a very unusual Kafka Summit by reflecting about change. Changes we've seen in the software engineering world and changes we've seen in Kafka. We'll also talk about things that don't change - like great software design and architecture. We'll dive deep into two huge changes that are happening in the Kafka community right now - and the possibilities they open for the future.
