Kafka Streams is a new stream processing library natively integrated with Kafka. It has a very low barrier to entry, easy operationalization, and a natural DSL for writing stream processing applications. As such it is the most convenient yet scalable option to analyze, transform, or otherwise process data that is backed by Kafka. We will provide the audience with an overview of Kafka Streams including its design and API, typical use cases, code examples, and an outlook of its upcoming roadmap. We will also compare Kafka Streams' light-weight library approach with heavier, framework-based tools such as Spark Streaming or Storm, which require you to understand and operate a whole different infrastructure for processing real-time data in Kafka.
