Attendees will get a full appreciation of how to build data pipelines and how they can process streaming data.

Kafka is an event streaming platform. Businesses and organisations often must capture data in real-time from event sources like databases, sensors, mobile devices, cloud services, social media, and software applications in the form of streams of events. They need to store these event streams durably for later retrieval. They also need to manipulate, process, and react to the event streams in real-time as well as retrospectively. The event streams need be made available to different destination technologies as needed. Kafka's event streaming implementation ensures a continuous flow and interpretation of data so that the right information is at the right place, at the right time.
