Fireside Chat with CTO Neha Narkhede

Marco and Neha chat, CTO to CTO.

We were very lucky to have some extremely prominent open source leaders speak at Kong Summit, including Neha Narkhede, who co-created Apache Kafka, co-founded Confluent and is now its CTO. Neha and Marco Palladino sat down for a far-ranging conversation about the history of Kafka, trends driving the software industry, strategies for open core businesses, and the challenges of being a CTO.

The conversation closed with both CTOs’ advice for engineers aspiring to found companies or become Chief Technology Officers.
