Let’s boldly go where no one has gone before. Get ready, Star Trek fans! Jean-Luc Picard will be representing our microservice. Once we have Jean-Luc in our ship (microservice in production), what happens on day 2? We still need to add authorization, load balancing, rate limiting, etc. With an API gateway, like Kong Gateway, you don’t have to know how to do this because a set of program components, called plugins, allow you to implement this without any problem.
As the post-pandemic world emerges, the future of events such as summits, conferences or concerts is brighter than ever. Thanks to hybrid events, in-person events are now doubled by online happenings, which allows event organizers to reach much larger, geographically distributed audiences. For organizers and ticket distributors, providing a great ticket-booking experience to their global audiences has become more important than ever.
We are excited to announce our new Kafka connector.

Today, I’m thrilled to announce that Lenses.io is joining Celonis, the leader in execution management. Together we will raise the bar in how businesses are run by driving them with real-time data, making the power of streaming open, operable and actionable for organizations across the world. When Lenses.io began, we could never have imagined we’d reach this moment.
Apache Kafka has grown from an obscure open-source project to a mass-adopted streaming technology, supporting all kinds of organizations and use cases. Many began their Apache Kafka journey to feed a data warehouse for analytics. Then moved to building event-driven applications, breaking down entire monoliths. Now, we move to the next chapter. Joining Celonis means we’re pleased to open up the possibility of real-time process mining and business execution with Kafka.
Recently, k6 started supporting k6 extensions to extend k6 capabilities for other cases required by the community. The community has already built plenty of extensions. k6 extensions are written in Go, and many of them are reusing existing Go libraries. This makes k6 to be a versatile tool to test different protocols and adapt to multiple cases. This post is the third part of my series of articles testing various systems using k6: Let's look in this post how we test the popular Kafka project.
There are many ways that Apache Kafka has been deployed in the field. In our Kafka Summit 2021 presentation, we took a brief overview of many different configurations that have been observed to date. In this blog series, we will discuss each of these deployments and the deployment choices made along with how they impact reliability.
Here we are, our screens split and fingers poised to forage through two days of fresh Kafka content at Kafka Summit Americas. Tweet us your #KafkaSummit highlights if they’re missing here and we can add them to the round-up.
