Part 04: Demystifying Stream Processing with Apache Kafka®

Speaker: Neha Narkhede, Co-founder and CTO, Confluent

This online talk introduces Kafka Streams and helps you understand how to map practical data problems to stream processing and how to write applications that process streams of data at scale using Kafka Streams. We also cover what is stream processing, why one should care about stream processing, where Apache Kafka® and Kafka Streams fit in, the hard parts of stream processing, and how Kafka Streams solves those problems; along with a concrete example of how these ideas tie together in Kafka Streams and in the big picture of your data center.

This is part 4 out of 6 of the Apache Kafka: Online Talk Series.
