Hey Roger, We haven't thought about this in great detail. People do all kinds of wacky things in practice. We have some that are like, "AdViewsByMemberId". There are various permutations of that.
One thing I haven't seen, but might be relevant, is including partition counts in the topic. If you're doing joins, you kind of care about both the join key and partition count. Sorry I don't have better guidance. :/ Cheers, Chris On Wed, Mar 18, 2015 at 5:23 PM, Roger Hoover <roger.hoo...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi, > > Wondering what naming conventions people are using for topics in Kafka. > When there's re-partitioning involved, you can end up with multiple topics > that have the exact same data but are partitioned differently.
