Natan Silnitsky
Wix.com, Backend Infra Developer

Natan Silnitsky is a backend-infra engineer @Wix.com. He is on the Data streaming team in charge of building event driven libraries and tools on top of Kafka and ZIO. Before that he was part of a task force that was responsible for building the next generation CI system at Wix on top of Google's Bazel build tool.

Has many years of experience as a developer of large scale web services - First in .Net, later in Scala. Natan's passions include clean and functional code, dev velocity and great software design.


During the past couple of years I’ve implemented or have witnessed implementations of several key patterns of event-driven messaging designs on top of Kafka that have facilitated creating a robust distributed microservices system at Wix that can easily handle increasing traffic and storage needs with many different use-cases. 

In this talk I will share these patterns with you, including: * Consume and Project (data decoupling) * End-to-end Events (Kafka+websockets) * In memory KV stores (consume and query with 0-latency) * Events transactions (Exactly Once Delivery)
