Kafka on Heroku
Kafka on Heroku is a durable, distributed messaging service for stream processing, optimized for developers

Apache Kafka is the backbone for building architectures that deal with billions of events a day. Chris Castle, developer advocate, will show you where it might fit in your roadmap.

See a live technical demo showing you how to quickly get started with Kafka on Heroku.

Get your questions answered in a live Q&A with Rand Fitzpatrick from the Heroku product team.

You’ll learn:

  • What Apache Kafka is and how to use it on Heroku
  • How Kafka enables you to model your data as immutable streams of events, introducing greater parallelism into your applications
  • How you can use it to solve scale problems across your stack such as managing high throughput inbound events and building data pipelines
