About this Episode

Launched by the creators of the Apache Kafka distributed streaming platform, Confluent not only maintains Kafka, but is on a mission to teach the world what a data-driven application ecosystem can do for business.

On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, Confluent CEO and co-founder Jay Kreps was interviewed by TNS associate podcast producer Kiran Oliver to discuss how Kafka has evolved over the years, what businesses just getting started with data streaming can expect from the platform, and how developers can tackle some of the challenges commonly faced when working with constant streams of data.
