For the past year, Atlassian has been leveraging Kafka, for its new chat tool Stride™. The team uses Kafka for a wide variety of features, ranging from notifications to storing message, all of which have varying levels of resiliency requirements. The speaker will share lessons learned as a result of building an event driven architecture for building notifications, going deep on what stats to measure and why, tracing and resiliency mechanisms like deadletter queues and what mechanism is best for particular requirements. How can you improve your own systems?Watch the talk Check the slides
