I watched this today


Really meshes with how I’ve been thinking about mobile clients staying in sync and provides some good ideas … I wonder if I would need something like kafka or if I would something simpler would work?

Elixir has been my target for this, but maybe since kafka is built on scala I need to consider that more.

If you uses somethign like kafka for this, then I think each mobile 'client' would have their own view/database on a server. something that would ensure a single writer. Then on a sync it would consume any new events from kafka and send the correct state back to the client.
