Apache Kafka® is an open-source distributed event streaming and queuing technology for large-scale, always-on applications. It is built with features that enable horizontal scalability, high throughput, and low latency. Kafka is primarily used for building high-performance data pipelines, streaming analytics, and providing a platform for data integration within an organization.

In this Cartoon Style Visual Introduction to Apache Kafka, we are going to build a “Postal Service” to deliver party invitations to two groups. Throughout the presentation, we will cover Kafka Producers, Consumers, Groups, Topics, Partitions, Keys, Records, Delivery Semantics (Guaranteed delivery, and who gets what messages). We’ll also have a quick look at Streams (mail sorting) and Connectors (how does mail get delivered between post offices).

What will you get out of this webinar?
This webinar will help attendees understand the fundamentals of Apache Kafka by introducing its key features and how you could potentially use this technology in an everyday setting.

Who should attend?
Beginners who are looking to pursue a career as a developer or architect to help get an understanding of how Apache Kafka works and some of its key benefits as an open-source streaming and queuing technology.
