Kafka and GraphQL: Misconceptions and connections.
Both for Kafka and GraphQL some misconceptions exist, and not many people know both well, or even combined both pieces of tech. I think these misconceptions play a big role in them, and there are some great ways to combine them.
After handling misconceptions like 'Kafka is just a message bus' and 'GraphQL is only for Graph databases' I will have a few demo's how both can be combined. It can be a clear way to make your event sourcing backend available to the frontend. Or it can create a quickly to setup typed api, if you already use ksqlDB.
Demo's will be based on docker, some JVM based, but also using Node. Might include a demo using Rustlang.
