Reading Group: The Log by Jay Kreps
Nov. 30, 2022, 7 p.m.
Once upon a time, Jay Kreps, one of the main authors of Kafka—that is Apache Kafka, not Franz—wrote a blog post about the so-called log architecture.
The blog post is this:
The Log: What every software engineer should know about real-time data's unifying abstraction
It’s quite long, now considered seminal, and people say it’s what we should read next! So join us, in the final reading group session of the year, to participate in this unique computing experience.
- Read The Log for 20 minutes in silence.
- Go to the pub
- Drink alcohol
- Discuss the article
