Over a third of respondents to last year's StackOverflow survey professed a dread of learning Apache Kafka. Nevertheless, with a curious mindset and the right resources, we have the tools to succeed in learning to use the Kafka platform. Take the plunge with me; together, we will conquer concepts like:
- Events and topics, producers, and consumers
- Partitions and brokers
- Different configurations for producers and consumers, and how these configurations affect application behavior
You'll be leaving with a spark of excitement knowing you have neutralized your dread, and that you are now firmly within the two-thirds of StackOverflow respondents who are comfortable learning Apache Kafka.
