Confluent will offer a half-day tutorial entitled Introduction to Apache Kafka and designed for those new to Kafka. During this hands-on session, participants will become familiar with the fundamentals of Kafka and the Confluent platform, and will gain practical experience building an application that can publish data to, and receive data from, Kafka.
During this afternoon session, we will discuss what Kafka is, explain how it works, and teach you the fundamentals of how to build modern data applications with Kafka. We’ll also discuss key architectural concepts and developer APIs. The tutorial includes hands-on exercises where you will build an application that can to publish data to Kafka and subscribe to data from Kafka. This tutorial is ideal for application developers, ETL (extract, transform, load) developers, or data scientists who are new to Kafka. If you are attending the Kafka Summit and do not have any hands-on experience with Kafka up to this point, we highly recommend attending; doing so will ensure that you get the maximum benefit from the Summit.
