Apache Kafka is a real-time data pipeline processor. It high-scalability, fault tolerance, execution speed, and fluid integrations are some of the key hallmarks that make it an integral part of many Enterprise Data architectures. In this lab intensive two day course, students will learn how to use Kafka to build streaming solutions.

Skills Gained

Working in a hands-on learning environment, students will explore:

  • Overview of Streaming technologies
  • Kafka concepts and architecture
  • Programming using Kafka API
  • Kafka Streams
  • Monitoring Kafka
  • Tuning / Troubleshooting Kafka

Concise and good to follow along. Although it is a lot to take in under a short period of time.

Classromm confortable and enviroment. Instructir knowlegeable of course matarial but need to align to students working in the Canadian Federal Govt. ve US Federal govt.

I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

Labs and the study materials provided for Architecting on AWS course are very easy to understand and explains all the topics required to pass the Associate certification.
