About

Welcome to the Apache Kafka Series! Join a community of 20,000+ students learning Kafka. Apache Kafka has become the leading distributed data streaming enterprise  big data technology. Kafka is used in production by over 33% of the Fortune 500 companies such as Netflix, Airbnb, Uber, Walmart and LinkedIn. To learn Kafka easily, step-by-step, you have come to the right place! No prior Kafka knowledge is required. Thanks to my several years of experience in Kafka and Big Data, I wanted to make learning Kafka accessible to everyone. We'll take a step-by-step approach to learn all the fundamentals of Apache Kafka. Note: The hands-on section is based on Java, which is the native Kafka programming language. But, good news! Your learning in Java will be completely applicable to other programming languages, such as Python, C#, Node.js or Scala, and Big Data frameworks such as Spark, NiFi or Akka. This is the course that could improve your career! Apache Kafka is a skill in high demand and there are not enough people to fulfil all the open positions. You can boost your income, take on new roles and fun challenges. Many of my students are now the Kafka experts of their companies!
