The Stream — February 2023 edition

Build a simple event-driven system to get ML predictions with Python and Apache Kafka

The Stream February 2023 banner.
Quix Streams combines an Apache Kafka client with a stream processing library, offering a feature-rich pure Python alternative to the kafka-python library. Deploy on your stack or on Quix Cloud for scalable, stateful and fault-tolerant ETL without the headache of cross-language debugging.

👉 Star the repo on GitHub and pip install quixstreams to get started.

Build a simple event-driven system to get ML predictions with Python and Apache Kafka

ML predictions with Python and Apache Kafka.

Our CTO Tomas Neubauer has put together a tutorial for you to learn how to continuously stream email records from a CSV file, get an ML inference for each record, and then stream the results back to a new Kafka topic.

Kafka Summit agenda now public

Kafka summit green banner.

The Apache Kafka and data streaming community will converge in London for another Kafka Summit. The line-up this year looks excellent. There will also be a pre-conference Hackathon to look forward to. Our CTO Tomas Neubauer will also be on stage on the second day to talk about a case study in cyclist crash detection. Hope to see you there!

Take a look at the line-up

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

What is real-time feature engineering?

Pre-computing features for real-time machine learning reduces the precision of the insights you can draw from data streams. In this guide, we'll look at what real-time feature engineering is and show you a simple example of how you can do it yourself.
