As the world transforms to digital, companies try to stay relevant while balancing demands for sustainability and social responsibility. Effective, efficient, and secure operations are critical.

To achieve the agility needed to succeed in an increasingly connected world, many organizations are turning to IoT to extend processing boundaries, allow for autonomous interactions, and power decisions with more data.

The ability to trust the identity of IoT devices is crucial. If a device is compromised or impersonated, decisions made on associated data can't be trusted; results can be catastrophic. Certificates and keys are options, but can be complex to manage and maintain. What other options are emerging? How can trust be built into an IoT device network? Join this session to hear about work in the area of blockchain, emerging decentralized identity, and how it could be applied.

However, there are other set of challenges that come with Federated Learning such as the quality of the data that is used for the training of models and statistical heterogeneity in the data. Join us for this LinkedIn Live session where we will discussing how to address those and many other challenges in order to take Federated Learning to new heights.

Title:
Inside ksqlDB

Abstract:
The mechanics behind stream processing can be challenging to grasp. The concepts are abstract, and many of them involve motion—two things that are hard for the mind's eye to visualize. In this talk, We'll open the hood of ksqlDB to explore its essential elements: rows, streams, tables, view materialization, repartitioning, scaling, and fault tolerance. We'll look at how each of these works and how it all relates to Kafka.

ksqlDB, the database for stream processing applications, is becoming one of the most popular ways to work with Apache Kafka. By the end of this presentation, you will understand the basics of ksqlDB as demonstrated in the ksqlDB 101 course on developer.confluent.io and how you can use Kafka to implement event streaming applications.

########
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are taking a hiatus from our in-person Hack Nights as we deal with the implications of COVID-19. We encourage teams to continue project work and to meet virtually from 6:00-8:00pm on Mondays. Our ability to provide pizza and snacks will be compromised, however :).

Individual teams will have access to video breakouts via Zoom. You can use Slack for breakout rooms if you like.

We are also exploring possible projects we could take on to help address this public health emergency. Please email codeforkc@kcdigitaldrive.org if you have any questions or are interested in working on immediate public health-related projects.

Thanks,
Aaron, Paul, and the rest of the Core Team
