Kafka for Real-Time Event Processing in Serverless Environments

Session Level: Intermediate
Video & Slides

Using Kafka as a platform messaging bus is common, but bridging communication between real-time and asynchronous components can become complicated, especially when dealing with serverless environments. This has become increasingly common in modern banking where events need to be processed at near-real-time speed. Serverless environments are well-suited to address these needs, and Kafka remains an excellent solution for providing the reliable, resilient communication layer between serverless components and dedicated stream processing services.

In this talk, we will examine some of the strengths and weaknesses of using Kafka for real-time communication, some tips for efficient interactions with Kafka and AWS Lambda, and a number of useful patterns for maximizing the strengths of Kafka and serverless components.
