Developer @ SoftwareMill
Krzysztof is a Scala enthusiast working remotely at SoftwareMill in Poland. Fascinated about BigData, FastData and distributed systems, Krzysztof explores technologies like Akka, Kafka and Functional Programming.
Apache Kafka is now widely adopted among modern distributed systems. In this presentation we will see how Akka Streams can add even more power to Kafka by exposing it as a reactive stream. We will see some examples of how the Reactive Kafka library can be leveraged to build a well-fitting and elegant match of partitioned, pull-based distributed log and asynchronous, backpressured streaming model.
