What’s Past is Prologue: A Story of Event-Driven Architecture


The growth of Kafka inside an organization sometimes follows the development of the broader Kafka ecosystem over its lifetime. The initial use case may be something conceptually simple, like mainframe offload or point-to-point integration, evoking the simple Large Pipe architectures of Kafka’s infancy.

This talk traces this development, ending with a comprehensive vision of an event-driven architecture suitable for the next generation of information technology deployments. You’ll leave knowing where you need to go and how this new architectural paradigm will help you get there.


Tim is a teacher, author, and technology leader with Confluent, where he serves as the Senior Director of Developer Relations. He can frequently be found speaking at conferences in the United States and all over the world. He is the co-presenter of various O’Reilly training videos on topics ranging from Git to Distributed Systems, and is the author of Gradle Beyond the Basics. He tweets as @tlberglund, blogs very occasionally at http://timberglund.com, writes at https://cnfl.io/blog-tim-berglund, is the co-host of the http://devrelrad.io podcast, and lives in Littleton, CO, USA with the wife of his youth and their youngest child, the other two having mostly grown up.
