As event streaming moves to the center of the systems we are building next, companies of all sizes are re-thinking their software architectures with real-time context at the forefront. Monoliths are evolving into Microservices. On-prem deployments are moving to the cloud. The old batch mindset is being replaced with stream processing as the demands of the business impose more and more real-time requirements on developers and architects.
This revolution is transforming industries—and the business of software development.
What started at companies like LinkedIn, Uber, Netflix and Yelp has made its way to countless others in a variety of sectors. Today, thousands of companies across the globe build their businesses on top of Apache Kafka®. Apache Kafka is an open source event streaming platform capable of handling trillions of events a day. Since being created and open sourced by LinkedIn in 2011, Kafka has quickly evolved from a simple piece of event logging infrastructure to a full-fledged event streaming platform.
Kafka Summit is the premier event for developers, architects, data engineers, devops professionals, and anyone else who wants to learn about streaming data. It brings the Apache Kafka community together to share best practices, learn how to build next-generation systems, and discuss the future of streaming technologies.
Kafka Summit Europe 2021 will be hosted virtually.
