Kafka Consumer Proxy at Uber with Haitao Zhang and Yang Yang | Bay Area Apache Kafka® Meetup

"Kafka Consumer Proxy is a forwarding proxy that consumes messages from Kafka and dispatches them to a user registered gRPC service endpoint. With Kafka Consumer Proxy, the experience of consuming messages from Apache Kafka for pub-sub use cases is as seamless and user-friendly as receiving (g)RPC requests. In this talk, we will share (1) the motivation for building this service, (2) the high-level architecture, (3) the mechanisms we designed to achieve high availability, scalability, and reliability, and (4) the current adoption status.
