Apache Kafka is an amazing piece of technology, that has been furiously adopted by companies all around the world to implement event-driven architectures. While its adoption continues to increase; the reality is that most developers often complain about the complexity of managing the clusters by themselves, which seriously decreases their ability to be agile. This talk will introduce Confluent Cloud, a service that offers Apache Kafka and the Confluent Platform so developers can focus on what they do best: the coding part.
Through interactive demos, it will be shown how to quickly reuse code written for standard Kafka APIs to connect to Confluent Cloud and doing some interesting stuff with it. This is a zero-experience-needed type of session, where the focus is on providing the first steps to beginners.
