Join us at Confluent’s San Francisco office on Sunday, September 29 for a Girl Geek Dinner to learn more about personal journeys in the world of open source technologies and how it may open new career doors while enjoying delicious food, libations and of course, networking! All ages & genders welcome.
In a fireside chat with Girl Geek X founder Angie Chang, Neha Narkhede (Confluent Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer) will share her experience founding a billion-dollar company, her technical contributions to Apache Kafka from her days at LinkedIn (she’s credited as a co-creator of Kafka!), and how open source can scale the careers of girl geeks.
Founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka®, Confluent builds an event streaming platform that enables companies to easily access data as real-time streams. From its early days, Confluent’s founders have been committed to the open-source community and Kafka’s status as an open-source project.
Confluent also organizes and hosts Kafka Summit, the user community conference for Apache Kafka.
Confluent Girl Geek Dinner is on the evening before Kafka Summit San Francisco, our largest and flagship event. All registered attendees for the Girl Geek Dinner will receive a complimentary pass to Kafka Summit.
Confluent, founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka®, pioneered the enterprise-ready event streaming platform. With Confluent, organizations benefit from the first event streaming platform built for the enterprise with the ease-of-use, scalability, security and flexibility required by the most discerning global companies to run their business in real time. Companies leading their respective industries have realized success with this new platform paradigm to transform their architectures to streaming from batch processing, spanning on-premises and multi-cloud environments. Backed by Benchmark, Index Ventures and Sequoia, Confluent is headquartered in Palo Alto and London with offices globally. To learn more, please visit www.confluent.io.
