Introduction to KSQL – Streaming SQL for Apache Kafka

Tim Vincent, Sales Engineer, Confluent

About this talk

Have you ever thought that you needed to be a programmer to do stream processing and build streaming data pipelines? Think again! Confluent Platform under pinned by Apache Kafka is a distributed, scalable, and fault-tolerant streaming platform, providing low-latency pub-sub messaging coupled with native storage and stream processing capabilities. Integrating Kafka with RDBMS, NoSQL, and object stores is simple with Kafka Connect, which is part of Apache Kafka. KSQL is the open-source SQL streaming engine for Apache Kafka, and makes it possible to build stream processing applications at scale, written using a familiar SQL interface. In this talk we’ll explain the architectural reasoning for Confluent Platform and the benefits of real-time integration, and we’ll build a streaming data pipeline using nothing but our bare hands, Kafka Connect, and KSQL.
