In my spare time, I tend to waste a lot of time. Occasionally, I do waste it on something useful. This page will be listing a couple of these side-projects that might be useful to others.
A PHP extension for Apache Kafka
I’ve recently started tinkering with the darling of big-data: Kafka. At my place of employment, the business intelligence people are quite taken by it. I decided to look into it, and found an abandoned repo, with the beginnings of a PHP extension. I forked it, and have been working hard to get it to a usable state.
Of course, all help is welcome, in whatever shape or form. Meanwhile, I’m putting a link to my repo anywhere I can, to spread the word, hopefully getting this project back on tracks.
