Thanks for the links. Read both and very helpful. This was the inspiration for me: https://www.confluent.io/blog/turning-the-database-inside-out-with-apache-samza/

I’ve only worked with Kafka a bit, but I like it a lot. Its weakness right now seems to be “materialized views” and stream processing in general. There’s ksql and kafka-streams to deal with joins between topics, but neither seem as good a solution as a rules engine

Agreed. I think Kafka is suitable as a source of facts, but the rules engine gives you both logic and materialized views for "complex event processing". If we could implement the distributed working menu in Onyx and feed the whole thing with Kafka, it seems pretty cool.
