Apache Kafka is on a roll. Last year it registered a 260 percent jump in developer popularity, as Redmonkrsquo;s Fintan Ryan highlights, a number that has only ballooned since then as IoT and other enterprise demands for real-time, streaming data become common. Hatched at LinkedIn, Kafkarsquo;s founding engineering team spun out to form Confluent, which has been a primary developer of the Apache project ever since.But not the only one.
Indeed, given the rising importance of Kafka, more companies than ever are committing code, including Eventador, started by Kenny Gorman and Erik Beebe, both co-founders of ObjectRocket (acquired by Rackspace).

Itrsquo;s a useful tool for search, for reminders, and for letting you know when you need to leave to get to that meeting on time.

But compared to Amazon Alexarsquo;s growing list of skills, itrsquo;s lagging in the personal assistant race.Yes, it connects to Office 365 and LinkedIn to give you some insight into your work, but then again so does Alexa.
