Building Data Pipelines with Apache Kafka Training Course


Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform. It is de facto a standard for building data pipelines and it solves a lot of different use-cases around data processing: it can be used as a message queue, distributed log, stream processor, etc.

We’ll start with some theory behind data pipelines in general, then continue with fundamental concepts behind Kafka. We’ll also discover important components like Kafka Streams and Kafka Connect.


Basic Java 8 or Scala knowledge is preferable. Please install Docker and Docker Compose if you want to run examples locally.
