Announcing Standard Webhooks

We're pleased to announce the launch of Standard Webhooks! Kong has been part of the Technical Committee of this standard with other great companies like Svix (the initiator of the project), Ngrok, Zapier, Twillio, Lob, Mux, and Supabase.

We've also incorporated it into our Lenses 5.3 release, boosting Kafka topic backup/restore.

Apache Kafka Message Compression

Apache Kafka® supports incredibly high throughput. It’s been known for feats like supporting 20 million orders per hour to get COVID tests out to US citizens during the pandemic. Kafka's approach to partitioning topics helps achieve this level of scalability. Topic partitions are the main "unit of parallelism" in Kafka. What’s a unit of parallelism? It’s like having multiple cashiers in the same store instead of one.

Dataflow Programming with Apache Flink and Apache Kafka

Recently, I got my hands dirty working with Apache Flink®. The experience was a little overwhelming. I have spent years working with streaming technologies but Flink was new to me and the resources online were rarely what I needed. Thankfully, I had access to some of the best Flink experts in the business to provide me with first-class advice, but not everyone has access to an expert when they need one.
