When to KSQL & When to Live the KStream

Session Level: Intermediate

In this all too fabulous talk we will be addressing the wonderful and new wonders of KSQL vs. KStreams. If you are new-ish to Kafka…you may ask yourself, “What is a large Kafka deployment?” And you may tell yourself, “This is not my beautiful KSQL use case!” And you may tell yourself, “This is not my beautiful KStreams use case!” And you may ask yourself, “What is a beautiful Kafka use case?” And you may ask yourself, “Where does that stream process go to?” And you may ask yourself, “Am I right about this architecture? Am I wrong?” And you may say yourself, “My God! What have I done?” 

In this talk, we will discuss the following concepts:

1. KSQL Architecture

2. KSQL Use Cases

3. Performance Considerations

4. When to KSQL and When to Not

5. Introduce KStreams

What this talk is: You will understand the architecture and the power of the KSQL continuous query engine and when to use it successfully.

What this talk is not: An intensive KStreams talk – but you will get enough under your belt to go forth and learn more about Stream Processing overall.
