Tutorial: An introduction to Apache Kafka

Ian Wrigley | 1:30pm–5:00pm | Location: 1B 03/04

Ian Wrigley demonstrates how to leverage the capabilities of Apache Kafka to collect, manage, and process stream data for both big data projects and general-purpose enterprise data integration—no prior knowledge of Kafka required. Ian covers system architecture and use cases and walks attendees through hands-on exercises where you’ll publish data to, and subscribe to data from, Kafka and investigate Kafka’s Java and REST APIs. Ian also explores other elements of the broader Kafka ecosystem, such as Kafka Connect and Kafka Streams.

This tutorial is ideal for application developers, ETL (extract, transform, load) developers, or data scientists who need to interact with Kafka clusters as a source of, or destination for, stream data.

Talk: Apache Kafka: The rise of real-time data and stream processing

Neha Narkhede | 1:15–1:55pm | Location: 1 E 12/1 E 13

Neha Narkhede explains how Apache Kafka serves as a foundation to streaming data applications that consume and process real-time data streams and introduces Kafka Connect, a system for capturing continuous data streams, and Kafka Streams, a lightweight stream processing library. Neha also describes the lessons companies like LinkedIn learned building massive streaming data architectures.

Talk: When one data center is not enough: Building large-scale stream infrastructures across multiple data centers with Apache Kafka

Ewen Cheslack-Postava | 1:15pm–1:55pm | 1 E 12/1 E 13

Ewen Cheslack-Postava explores resilient multi-data-center architecture with Apache Kafka, sharing best practices for data replication and mirroring as well as disaster scenarios and failure handling. Ewen covers four scenarios—replication and failover for disaster recovery, data produced in one location but consumed in another, aggregate cluster for data analysis, and bidirection replication—discussing the requirements for each, providing a proven architecture, and explaining the benefits and limitations of the solution.

Talk: Securing Apache Kafka

Jun Rao | 2:05–2:35pm | Location: 3D 04/09

With Apache Kafka 0.9, the community has introduced a number of features to make data streams secure. Jun Rao explains the motivation for making these changes and the threats that Kafka Security mitigates, discusses the design of Kafka security, and demonstrates how to secure a Kafka cluster. Jun also covers common pitfalls in securing Kafka and talks about ongoing security work.
