Apache Kafka: Intro and use in cfml

The website todocoleccion.net has a large and old codebase. Looking for a solution to decouple traditional large actions cfml to an event base codebase that need to be scalable and fast, we implemented Apache Kafka.

In this session I will introduce Apache Kafka, the distributed streaming platform, the key concepts that distinguish this software from other traditional “queue” systems.

In the second part, I will show how we use it in production, how you can scale producers and consumers easily.
