TechTalk: Kafka

Once a month we have our internal Tech Talk, this time regarding Kafka.

Apache Kafka is a community distributed event streaming platform capable of handling trillions of events a day. Initially conceived as a messaging queue, Kafka is based on an abstraction of a distributed commit log.

Since being created and open sourced by LinkedIn in 2011, Kafka has quickly evolved from messaging queue to a full-fledged event streaming platform.


The agenda of our Tech Talk:

  • Intro & Difference to Confluent: Confluent has other Products which are addendum to the Kafka system - Confluent Platform, REST API, KSQL (Kafka SQL)
  • Distributed Streaming Plattform
  • Topics, Brokers, Producer
  • Consumer, Groups, Offsets, Delivery semantics for consumers (counterpart of producer ack)
  • Kafka Broker Discovery
  • Metadata, Zookeeper and a lot more …
