Kafka Streams 101

All things change constantly! And dealing with constantly changing data at low latency is pretty hard. It doesn't need to be that way. Kafka has become a de-facto standard for ingesting event-based data and is considered the central nervous system for data in many organizations on top of Kafka. It allows you to transform streams, perform analysis, and stateful operations on the incoming data. In this presentation, Dennis will cover:
• A quick intro into Kafka 101.
• What is Kafka Streams.
• How Kafka Streams enables/simplifies event-based processing.

By the end of this presentation, you will understand the basics of Kafka Streams as demonstrated in the Kafka Streams 101 course on and how you can use Kafka to implement event streaming applications.

Don't forget to join our Forum and Community Slack Team!
