A Practical Introduction to Apache Kafka

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how Apache Kafka works, and how to use Kafka Connect to import and export data to and from Kafka. We will discuss the Kafka's key architectural features, and how it can be used as a central bus for all the data in an organization. You will import data into Kafka from a relational database, write code that modifies data as it is imported via Connect, for example to mask personally identifiable information (PII), and export data back to an external system.
