Description

During this instructor-led three-day hands-on we will learn how to use advanced Kafka Streams API and discuss best-practices for both for development and production.

Course Objectives

This course enables participants to acquire the following skills:

  • Understand how Kafka Streams DSL API and the low-level Processor API work.
  • Build stream processing topologies.
  • Create stateful streaming applications using internal state stores.
  • Optimize Kafka Streams applications for performance.

    Pedagogy

    50% theory, 50% practise

    Who Should Attend ?

    This course is designed for applications Developers, Architects, Data engineers who need to build and deploy streaming applications for enrich, transform, join and query data flowing through Apache Kafka in real-time.

    Course Duration

    3 Days
