Description

After five years of helping hundreds of customers use Apache Kafka, you’ve seen it all. This is for anyone that is running, or planning to run, Apache Kafka in production. Gwen Shapira reviews the most common causes for downtime and data loss in Apache Kafka deployments—some were self-inflicted and easy to avoid, others were unexpected and tricky to troubleshoot. Then, she discusses how to avoid those common issues and how to troubleshoot some tricky cases.

Gwen teaches you how to run Apache Kafka responsibly in production and gives you the tools to self-rescue when things go wrong anyway.
