Kafka Architecture and Design

There has been a lot of interest from the community related to realtime systems and specific requests for Apache Kafka. At our next Meetup, I’m excited to have Kevin Feasel presenting on this topic!

Please join us on April 26th for this discussion. There will also be pizza!!

Apache Kafka is a distributed publish-subscribe messaging system which can scale out to handle millions of messages per second. In this talk, we will cover the basics of this powerful system, including general architectural and design principles. We will also build a .NET project which uses Kafka to produce and consume messages quickly and efficiently.

Kevin Feasel is a Data Platform MVP and Engineering Manager of the Predictive Analytics team at ChannelAdvisor, where he specializes in T-SQL and R development, fighting with Kafka, and pulling rabbits out of hats on demand. He is the lead contributor to Curated SQL ( and a contributing author to Tribal SQL ( A resident of Durham, North Carolina, he can be found cycling the trails along the triangle whenever the weather’s nice enough.
