Apache Kafka is a message broker that offers not only massive scalability and fault tolerance, but also unique guarantees around message ordering and delivery. Relaying billing information, detecting security-related events, storing information at high-throughput - Kafka greatly simplifies it all and gives developers a chance to rethink the data flows between components, moving information interchange into the center of their architectures.

I missed some info on why kafka is better than other similar tools out there

not really symfony oriented, but really good talk. excellently exposed

Good talk, providing basics you need to use Kafka. You mentioned it could be used for IoT, but how does it compare to MQTT? Afaict the approach is very similar, but I think MQTT has less overhead.

Good talk

A decent introduction to Kafka and it's possibilities. Well done!

Interesting talk with some tech insites. Just missed any comparisons or problems description imo

Too bad RabbitMQ or any other similar alternatives were not mentioned. Good insights about kafka and why it is so fast.

Nice talk, thank you! It would be nice to have more comparison for RabbitMQ for instance

Wie immer ein guter Vortrag von David. Alles gut erklärt und gut lesbare und verständliche Folien. Top!


Not about Symfony, but IMO one of the best presentations in this years symfonyCon.

interesting topic but maybe could analyze use cases and how to adopt Kafka to them.

Good introduction to Kafka

The speaker and the talk was good. But I miss few things: How does it compare to others tools similar (rabbitmq) and what are the common pitfalls and best practice.

Thank you all for your feedback! I'll definitely incorporate a comparison with AMQP, MQTT, PubSub etc. for a future iteration, at least for session formats that allow it time wise (can't always do it all within 40 minutes unfortunately).

Slides with a few fixes and additions are now in the details too. Enjoy!

nice explore on new stuff....but i would have preferred more symfony code

Great talk with a good introduction into Kafka, it's underlying principles and some use cases.
