Schema Registry and how the encoding/decoding actually works under the hood!
The data ecosystem has come along way in last decade. The ride from structured to unstructured data has been quick. And kafka (more genrally the streaming ecosystem) has been at the forefront of that innovation. While the streaming architecture started with bits (== data - semantics) flowing through the network to offer flexibity the structure and semantics has caught up rather quickly. The same is evident by confluent’s schema registry for kafka and schema registry being shipped with Apache pulsar etc.
The schema representation though is a vast topic and with multiple topics (json-schemas, avro, protobuf, thrift) its difficult to really understand whats best for you. This talk will present this formats and how they actually work under the hood encoding and decoding data, how the schema evolves over time relating to all these formats etc.
This talk is mostly centered around:
- The most popular schema representation formats.
- How these formats actually encode and decode data on producer/consumer ends.
- Why we chose Avro for our pipeline
- What are the important factors in choosing one of these.
