San Francisco. New York. San Francisco again. What is left to do? Why, Kafka Summit London, of course! The Kafka Community’s first Summit on this sceptred isle opens today. Kafka Summit has established itself as the premier streaming systems event for data architects, engineers, DevOps professionals, and developers. It’s a deeply technical, community-focused conference that brings Apache Kafka® practitioners together to share experiences, nail down best practices, and plot the future of streaming technologies. If you’re building streaming systems, you know you’re breaking new ground. You need to hear from your peers and friends who are blazing the same trail.
If you couldn’t make it to London this week, that’s okay: we’ve got you covered! We’ll be live streaming the keynotes both days, so jump on the YouTube live stream to get fresh insights into how to build the next-generation distributed systems you are working on. As usual, we will post recordings of all of the conference sessions after the event, so you can benefit from the educational content even if we didn’t get the pleasure of your company on-site.
We have four keynotes in all—two on Monday afternoon and two on Tuesday morning.
For those of you attending Kafka Summit London today and tomorrow, a few things to keep in mind:
Lest I forget, many thanks to our sponsors. None of this is possible without their support. So, show them some Kafka-community love by visiting their booths during expo hours.
And finally, another thank-you to the Kafka Summit Program Committee for 2018. These folks were indispensable in selecting the talks that make up the London Summit, and are still serving for the San Francisco Summit, whose call for papers will open…soon.
