Simplifying Distributed Systems Using Apache Kafka

With the rising popularity of micro service architectures and typical scaling patterns used at enterprises, distributed systems are becoming more common and complex. What was once a simple web server connected to a database now can entail multiple databases, caches and integrations to other services/systems. By using Apache Kafka one can take much of the integration complexity out of the system, reduce coupling between the different components, easily expand functionality without disruption and scale horizontally.

This presentation will cover patterns and concepts that can be used to achieve all of the above. There will be a quick overview of how Apache Kafka works, it’s differences from other messaging brokers and why that’s important. I’ll speak about the good, the bad and what was missed during my experience working with large distributed systems. Finally I’ll briefly mention other technologies that work well with Kafka.
