Data Metamorphosis With KafkaJS

As you enter the world of microservices, you will need a way to have easy communication across your containers. As a JavaScript developer, you might be tempted to use REST APIs across the board. Express is certainly a familiar framework, but it might now be the best choice.


Enter KafkaJS. Using Kafka is a tool to ensure fluid communication across all of your microservices. To implement it with your JavaScript applications, you can use KafkaJS. In this talk, the attendees will learn how to use Kafka in the context of a JavaScript microservices architecture.
