Title: The Changing Face of ETL: Event-Driven Architectures for Data Engineers

Data integration in architectures built on static, update-in-place datastores inevitably end up with pathologically high degrees of coupling and poor scalability. This has been the standard practice for decades, as we attempt to build data pipelines on top of databases that do a poor job modeling the fundamental objects that drive our businesses and systems: events.

Robin is a Senior Developer Advocate at Confluent, the company founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka, as well as an Oracle ACE Director (Alumnus). He has been speaking at conferences since 2009 including QCon, Devoxx, Strata, Kafka Summit, and Øredev. You can find many of his talks online at, and his blog articles at and Outside of work he enjoys drinking good beer and eating fried breakfasts, although generally not at the same time.

Online Meetup Etiquette:
•Please unmute yourself when you have a question.
•Please hold your questions until the end of the presentation or use the zoomchat!
•Please arrive on time as zoom meetings can become locked for many reasons.
