Change Data Capture (CDC) with Debezium Training Course


Debezium is an open source distributed platform for capturing database changes. Debezium operates as a connector service between a database and applications that wish to process changes to the database.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at engineers who wish to enable applications to continuously monitor and stream all commits made to their database.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Install and configure ZooKeeper, Kafka, and the Debezium connector service.
  • Set up applications to automatically consume and respond to database inserts, updates, and deletes.
  • Turn database row-level changes into event streams that applications can respond to immediately.
  • Stream each row-level change in the same order that it was committed to the database.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
