GO NORTH TOGETHER - Hacking A Kafka Game Engine

Mini-Lab @ Coding Cafe
Mind the Geek

Develop some event-streaming skills with Kafka & Java as we hack on an online adventure game. We'll have three sub-tracks in which you can add a new feature to the game, extend the game's rules engine, or just write some new story & puzzles. All skill levels are welcome. We encourage you to attend the talk, "GO NORTH - A Kafka Adventure Game," beforehand to get familiar with the project's architecture.

Requirements: Java 16, Node and Kafka (or Docker, to get Kafka with the dockerfile we'll supply).

Scheduled on Tuesday from 14:25 to 15:25 in Coding Cafe
