With the arrival of streaming platforms, industries are being rethought with real-time context at the forefront. What was once a ‘batch’ manner of thinking about business is quickly being replaced with streams as real world examples are entering everyday life.
This revolution is transforming industries. What started at companies like LinkedIn, Uber, Netflix and Yelp has made its way to countless others. Today, thousands of companies across the globe build their businesses on top of Apache Kafka. The developers responsible for this revolution need a place to share their experiences on this journey.
