1. Message Redelivery: An Unexpected Journey

David Kjerrumgaard, Developer Advocate, StreamNative

Understanding Pulsar’s redelivery semantics is critical for preventing duplicate or out-of-order processing when message acknowledgments are not received. This talk walks you through the redelivery semantics, highlights some of the mechanisms available to application developers to control this behavior, and provides best practices for configuring message redelivery to suit various use cases.

2. Is Using KoP (Kafka-On-Pulsar) a Good Idea?

Ricardo Ferreira, Senior Developer Advocate, AWS

Learn how to unlock infinite event stream retention, a rebalance-free architecture, native support for event processing, and the multi-tenancy with Apache Pulsar for your microservices written for Apache Kafka. This talk dives into the architecture of protocol handlers and how KoP (Kafka-on-Pulsar) works.

Caito Scherr, Developer Advocate, Ververica

Learn how to build a unified batch and streaming pipeline from scratch with Apache Pulsar and Flink SQL in this step-by-step demo. Leverage the power of Apache Flink, a high-speed, customizable stream processing engine, without the steep learning curve.

4. Building Reliable Lakehouses with Apache Pulsar and Delta Lake

Denny Lee, Sr. Staff Developer Advocate and Delta Lake Committer, Databricks

Explore the key features of Delta Lake that enable the Lakehouse architecture. Learn about the future ecosystem around Delta Lake, including supporting multiple languages and data processing systems.

5. Towards a ZooKeeper-less Pulsar, etcd, etcd, etcd.

Matteo Merli, Apache Pulsar PMC Chair, CTO, StreamNative

Apache Pulsar 2.10 eliminates Pulsar’s dependency on Apache ZooKeeper and introduces a pluggable framework to enable leveraging alternative metadata and coordination systems.
