19:15 – 19:40 – “A legacy app enters a Serverless bar” by Sébastien Blanc, Developer Advocate at Aiven

Bob is a legacy app, built in 2010, he is still the cash cow of the company and this is why he is still there. But Bob is fragile, all the developers that worked on him left the company. He is like a Jenga tower after 20 turns and could collapse any day. Even if he knows it’s too late for him, Bob goes on a quest to see what can be done, his company wants to enter the event-driven and serverless world.

During his journey Bob will meet Debezium explaining to him that he can capture Bob’s data and send it to a river of data called Kafka … He will also discover how this river of data can wake up another creature: Knative, master of the serverless realm.
