iO Associates are delighted to bring you the next in our series of Java Virtual Meetups! This next meetup will be on Wednesday 16th December at 7pm and will be featuring Erik Schmiegelow, CEO at Hivemind Technologies. Erik will be presenting a talk on ‘Intro to Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams’.

In this session, Erik will give an overview of Apache Kafka, explaining its architecture and design principles, and convey an understanding of its benefits for stream oriented applications and event processing use cases. He will also walk us through Kafka Stream, showing us how it works and how well it integrates into Kafka when building message driven applications.
