Kafka: Building a Data Pipeline

Abstract:
Scott is going cover how Kafka is used at SoFi as an event bus backbone for decoupled microservices. This presentation will also cover the motivation to use Kafka, and how specific requirements impacted adoption. The presentation will share the overall architecture, benefits to the company, and include specific use cases. Those use cases include decoupling of microservices, development of a stream processing BI platform, and reducing our reliance on batch jobs in favor of real time data updates.
