FastStream: Code Generation Meets Stream Processing
Navigating the complexities of streaming protocols like Apache Kafka, RabbitMQ and NATS often bogs down development in data-centric microservices architectures. Enter FastStream: a modern framework designed to streamline this process by offering a unified API tailored for these messaging platforms. In this talk, we’ll explore how FastStream not only simplifies integration with streaming protocols but also enables seamless, automated code generation using large language models like GPT and Llama.
