Join Dean Wampler and Boris Lublinsky to learn how to build two microservice streaming applications based on Kafka using Akka Streams and Kafka Streams for data processing. You'll explore the strengths and weaknesses of each tool for particular design needs and contrast them with Spark Streaming and Flink, so you'll know when to choose them instead. Read more.

Meet the Experts
Location: Table A (Expo Hall)
Dean Wampler (Lightbend)
Join Dean to discuss all things streaming, from new architectures that integrate more closely with microservices, using Kafka as the data backplane, and Spark and Flink for large-scale data streams where sophisticated handling is required to using Akka Streams and Kafka Streams, runtime platforms like Mesos, Kubernetes, and YARN, and alternatives to all the above.
