Confluent, original creators of Apache Kafka®

Kelsey Hightower was already an advocate, just like all other developers, long before joining Google officially as a developer advocate and Kubernetes expert. Gaining trust in your product, process, and the way you develop code requires the ability to explain those things well. 

Kelsey reflects on the journey that brought him to where he is today and how Kubernetes has evolved over the years too, including what makes Kubernetes so successful. But Tim is not the only one with questions. Kelsey asks a few of his own: does Apache Kafka® want to be a database? Does Kafka want to be a system of record? Is there overlap between Kubernetes and Kafka? Can you run Kafka on Kubernetes?
