Speaker Bio:
Kris Jenkins is the former CTO of a gold-trading company, contractor for a number of internet startups, and now Developer Advocate at Confluent. He enjoys anything that makes system architecture simpler and more reliable (like functional programming and event-based systems), and anything that puts the fun back into coding (like meetups, hackathons, and playing with new technology).

How much can we do with Kafka in 20 minutes of coding?
Let's find out! In this live-coding session, we'll build a real-time dashboard from scratch^. Dancing across three languages - KSQL, Java, and JavaScript - we'll piece together the skeleton of a dashboard that could serve KPIs to everyone in your organization, or just form the basis of your next lunchtime hacking session.

(^ Almost from scratch. We'll start with a build file. No one wants to watch log4j being configured by hand.)


Find out about other upcoming online meetups and recordings from past Kafka Meetups all over the world:


Online Meetup Etiquette:
•Please hold your questions until the end of the presentation or use the Zoom chat during!
•Please arrive on time as zoom meetings can become locked for many reasons (though if you get locked out a recording will be available, you may have to wait a little while for it!)
