So You’ve Inherited Kafka? Now What?

Kafka, many times is just a piece of the stack that lives in production that often times no one wants to touch – because it just works. At AppsFlyer, a mobile attribution and analysis platform that generates a constant “storm” of 70B+ events (HTTP Requests) daily, Kafka sits at the core of our infrastructure. Recently I inherited the daunting task of managing our Kafka operation and discovered a lot of technical debt we needed to recover from if we wanted to be able sustain our next phase of growth. This talk will dive into how to safely migrate from outdated versions, how to gain trust with developers to migrate their production services, how to manage and monitor the right metrics and build resiliency into the architecture, as well as how to plan for continued improvements through paradigms such as sleep-driven design, and much more.
