Google Cloud Next '19

Speaker: Gaetan Castelein, VP of Product Marketing and Kir Titievsky, Google Product Management Session: Confluent and Google: Cloud-Native Event Streaming for KafkaRoom: Moscone South, Lower Level, Cloud Talk 1April 10 3:00–3:20 PM

Join Kir Titievsky, Google Product Management and Gaetan Castelein, Confluent Product Marketing, to hear about how Confluent and Google are partnering to give you a complete event-event streaming platform that extends Kafka with essential capabilities for developers and enterprises. Confluent is available as a fully managed, first class service on GCP, or can be deployed on-premises on Google Cloud Services Platform. Developers can deploy Confluent Cloud in minutes right from the Google Cloud Console to start building event-driven applications. And enterprises can build hybrid could streaming solutions with a common platform that spans from on-premises to GCP, streaming data to GCP to leverage best-of-breed services such as BigQuery and TensorFlow. Join us in this session to learn about Confluent and GCP services, and see how you can get started in just minutes with no upfront commitment.

Speaker: Ricardo Ferreira, Developer Advocate at Confluent and Karthi Thyagarajan, Solutions Architect at Google CloudSession: GCP for Apache Kafka Users: Stream Ingestion and ProcessingRoom: Moscone South, Level 2, Room 214April 11 2:35–3:25 PM

In private and public clouds, stream analytics commonly means stateless processing systems organized around Apache Kafka or a similar distributed log service. GCP took a somewhat different tack, with Cloud Pub/Sub, Dataflow, and BigQuery, distributing the responsibility for processing among ingestion, processing and database technologies. We compare the two approaches to data integration and show how Dataflow allows you to join and transform and deliver data streams among on-prem and cloud Kafka clusters, Cloud Pub/Sub topics and a variety of databases. The session will have a mix of architectural discussions and practical code reviews of Dataflow-based pipelines.

MEETUP: Hosted at Confluent HQ: Apache Kafka® controller with Jun Rao and Kafka at Uber


6:00pm - 6:30pm: Entry, Networking, Pizza and Drinks
6:30pm - 7:10pm: Joseph Rea, Confluent
7:10pm - 7:50pm: Yupeng Fu, Uber
7:50pm - 8:30pm: Jun Rao, Confluent
8:45pm - 9:00pm: Additional Q&A and Networking

Speaker: Joseph Rea, Software Engineer at ConfluentSession: Building the message browser UI

Joseph will talk about how to visualize topics in Kafka, the difference between a stream and table in KSQL and his lessons learned on tackling this technical challenge with millions of Kafka messages consumed per second. With such functionalities, users can understand their data easier and in a highly performant and scalable way. This talk covers understanding web workers as they relate to webpack, web socket management, debugging browser performance, and the future of the applications that can now be built.

Speaker: Yupeng Fu, Staff Engineer at UberSession: Disaster recovery for multi-region Kafka at Uber

High availability and reliability are important requirements to Uber services, and the services shall tolerate data center failures in a region and fail over to another region. In this talk, we will present the active-active Kafka at Uber and how it facilitates disaster discovery across regions for Uber services. In particular, we will highlight the key components including topic replication, topic aggregation, offsets sync, and then walk through several use cases of their disaster recovery strategy using active-active Kafka. Lastly, we will present several interesting challenges and the future work we planned.

Speaker: Jun Rao, Co-Founder of ConfluentSession: Kafka Controller: A Deep Dive

The controller is the brain of Apache Kafka. A big part of what the controller does is to maintain the consistency of the replicas and determine which replica can be used to serve the clients, especially during individual broker failure.
In this talk Jun will outline the main data flow in the controller—in particular, when a broker fails, how the controller automatically promotes another replica as the leader to serve the clients, and when a broker is started, how the controller resumes the replication pipeline in the restarted broker. Jun will then describe recent improvements to the controller that allow it to handle certain edge cases correctly and increase its performance, which allows for more partitions in a Kafka cluster.


JAX 2019

Confluent will be sponsoring JAX 2019 in Mainz, together with our partner SVA.
