About the author
My name is Mitch Seymour and I am a tech lead and senior engineer on the Data Services team at Mailchimp
. I have been working with Kafka Streams since 2016 and ksqlDB since 2017 (back when it was just called KSQL
). I have spoken about these technologies at company tech talks, local meetups, and international conferences (Kafka Summit London, 2019). I have also contributed to the ksqlDB code base and the Confluent blog
. This book is my newest and biggest venture yet, and I am excited to share these technologies with the world.
Outside of work, I am a proud father and husband. I also run a non-profit called Puplift,
eat a lot of Thai food, and occasionally make music. I am excited to add "Author" to the many hats I currently wear, and I hope you enjoy reading this book.
