Best of Both Worlds: Apache Pulsar and Apache Kafka

Track: Architecture
Which streaming technology is right for me? Do I need to use Apache Pulsar or do I choose Apache Kafka? That is mostly the question, but did you also knew that you can combine them?  In this session we will show how to use best of both worlds. Let's compare both architectures and Java Client Implementations and decide what's best for you! Do you pick the battle? Or are you making allies? It's up to you!
