Dashing Off A Dashboard by Kris Jenkins, Senior Developer Advocate, Confluent

How much can we do with Kafka in 20 minutes of coding?
Let’s find out.
In this live-coding session we’ll build a real-time dashboard from
scratch^. Dancing across three languages – KSQL, Java and JavaScript –
we’ll piece together the skeleton of a dashboard that could serve KPIs
to everyone in your organisation, or just form the basis of your next
lunchtime hacking session.
(^ Almost from scratch. We’ll start with a log4j.properties
file. No-one wants to watch log4j being configured by hand.)

Kris Jenkins is the former CTO of a gold-trading company, contractor for a number of internet startups, and now Developer Advocate at Confluent. He enjoys anything that makes system architecture simpler and more reliable (like functional programming and event-based systems), and anything that puts the fun back into coding (like meetups, hackathons, and playing with new technology).

Kris lives in London with his noun phrase and two subjunctive clauses.

What’s Past is Prologue: a Story of Event-Driven Architecture by Tim Berglund, Senior Director, Developer Advocacy, Confluent

The growth of Kafka inside an organization sometimes follows the development of the broader Kafka ecosystem over its lifetime. The initial use case may be something conceptually simple, like mainframe offload or point-to-point integration, evoking the simple Large Pipe architectures of Kafka’s infancy.

This talk traces this development, ending with a comprehensive vision of an event-driven architecture suitable for the next generation of information technology deployments. You’ll leave knowing where you need to go and how this new architectural paradigm will help you get there.

Tim is a teacher, author, and technology leader with Confluent, where he serves as the Senior Director of Developer Relations. He can frequently be found speaking at conferences in the United States and all over the world. He is the co-presenter of various O’Reilly training videos on topics ranging from Git to Distributed Systems, and is the author of Gradle Beyond the Basics. He tweets as @tlberglund, blogs very occasionally at http://timberglund.com, writes at https://cnfl.io/blog-tim-berglund, is the co-host of the http://devrelrad.io podcast, and lives in Littleton, CO, USA with the wife of his youth and their youngest child, the other two having mostly grown up.
