We’re excited to announce that our next Cloud Chats by Aiven webinar is “Apache Kafka 101: The Why, What and How” on Wednesday, June 17 at 3 p.m. CEST/9 a.m. EDT.

You can watch the on-demand webinar here.

You’ve probably read a lot about Apache Kafka by now, but have you ever wondered why it is the way it is, and what makes it so popular these days as a messaging queue, and how to use it? In this webinar, we’ll look at:

  • Why did Apache Kafka come about?
  • The need for asynchronous communication in today’s systems.
  • Apache Kafka architecture and how it supports async communication.
  • Complementary technologies, like ZooKeeper, MirrorMaker 2.0 and Karapace.
  • The advantages of a managed Apache Kafka service.

We’ll wrap things up with a brief producer/consumer demo, to highlight Apache Kafka’s functionality.

The webinar will be presented by John Hammink, Developer Advocate at Aiven.io, and hosted by Chris Gwilliams, Solution Architect.
