Our Talk at Kafka Summit London 2023

You have built and deployed your gRPC micro-services architecture and now you need to expand beyond request-response to add streaming. Helpfully, gRPC has built-in support for bidirectional streaming. You probably already have the event streams in Kafka and have been tasked with figuring out the integration. You might even build a prototype to better understand the performance, security and scalability challenges.
I will discuss some of these challenges in detail and also describe solutions to help meet them, including a straightforward approach to bridge gRPC streams to and from Apache Kafka.
