MQTT is celebrating its 20th birthday! We at HiveMQ are very proud to be a part of the MQTT community and salute all those that have made MQTT a success.
This month we are focused on two topics: MQTT 5 and Kafka for IoT. MQTT 5 is an important improvement for the MQTT standard. We want to make it easy for everyone to update so we have launched a new MQTT 5 Essentials series of articles to provide in-depth review of the MQTT 5 features. For Kafka, a new version of our Kafka extension has been released that now supports bidirectional messaging. Check out the details below.
As a reminder, if you have a technical question about HiveMQ or MQTT, please feel free to ask it on the HiveMQ Community Forum.
HiveMQ is thrilled to launch the new MQTT 5 Essentials series of articles that takes a deep dive into the features of MQTT 5. We are publishing a new article each week so check out our blog for regular updates.
HiveMQ makes it possible to stream IoT MQTT messages to Apache Kafka with our unique approach to extending the MQTT broker with a Kafka client. We are excited to announce a new release of the HiveMQ Kafka extension that now supports bidirectional messaging between the IoT device and Kafka.
HiveMQ and Confluent are also doing a number of presentations about the Best Practices for Streaming IoT Data with MQTT and Apache Kafka. Register for our joint webinar on November 14.
Dominik Obermaier, HiveMQ CTO, will also be speaking at the Confluent Streaming Event in Frankfurt (November 11) and Zurich (November 13). If you are local, drop by to see a live demo of 100,000 connected devices sending data to Kafka through HiveMQ.
