DevNation tech talks are hosted by the Red Hat technologists who create our products. These sessions include real solutions and code and sample projects to help you get started. In this presentation, you’ll learn about the serverless developer experience on Kubernetes with Knative and Apache Kafka from Matthias Wessendorf.
Apache Kafka has emerged as a leading platform for building real-time data pipelines and for high-throughput/low-latency messaging. With its scalable and distributed design, Apache Kafka is a good fit for platforms like Kubernetes. Knative, on the other hand, is a Kubernetes-based platform that comes with a set of building blocks to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads.
In this session, we will walk through an end-to-end demo, showing the lifecycle of an event-driven application based on Apache Kafka. You'll see how to hook up your serverless application to Apache Kafka and connect your service for processing incoming events.
