Course Description

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2018: Course newly recorded with Kafka 2.0!

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

===============================

If you look at the documentation, you can see that Apache Kafka is not easy to learn...

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.
At the end of this course, you'll be productive and you'll know the following:

  • The Apache Kafka Ecosystem Architecture

  • The Kafka Core Concepts: Topics, Partitions, Brokers, Replicas, Producers, Consumers, and more!

  • Launch your own Kafka cluster in no time using native Kafka binaries – Windows / MacOS X / Linux 

  • Learn and Practice using the Kafka Command Line Interface (CLI)

  • Code Producer and Consumers using the Java API 

  • Real world project using Twitter as a source of data for a producer and ElasticSearch as a sink for our consumer

  • Overview of Advanced APIs (Kafka Connect, Kafka Streams)

  • Real World Case Studies and Big  Use cases

  • Overview of Advanced Kafka for Administrators

  • Advanced Topic Configurations

  • Annexes (starting a Kafka cluster locally, using Docker, etc...)

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

His Kafka course https://www.udemy.com/course/apache-kafka/ is highly rated and AWS courses get good feedback. A lot of effort gone in to the production and is knowledgeable on the topics.

Given the Kafka course has 56,023 registered students alone even at the lowest offer price minus Udemy fee's he's done alright out of it.

Sometimes authors give away a course for free for a few days and post on places like Reddit. This helps them to get the initial mass and ratings. So we can't always assume that all registered students have paid for the course. I have taken a few free courses like these when I saw them on reddit.
