Good day SQL folks!

SQLDay has just started! We have a workshop about DevOps and Kamil promises to publish a great series of posts about SSDT and topics around that. We have an idea that the DevOps topic should be alive as this is the growing trend in the IT.

It also features an improved user experience and is also lighter weight than our previous synchronous Java SDK (yielding a 2x performance improvement on the client-side)!

Event Hubs for Kafka ecosystem supports Apache Kafka 1.0 and newer client versions, and works with your existing Kafka applications, including MirrorMaker.
