About This Webinar

Apache Kafka® is an open-source distributed event streaming and queuing technology for large-scale, always-on applications. It is built with features that enable horizontal scalability, high throughput, and low latency. Kafka is primarily used for building high-performance data pipelines, streaming analytics, and providing a platform for data integration within an organization.

In this Cartoon Style Visual Introduction to Apache Kafka, we are going to build a “Postal Service” to deliver party invitations to two groups. Throughout the presentation, we will cover Kafka Producers, Consumers, Groups, Topics, Partitions, Keys, Records, Delivery Semantics (Guaranteed delivery, and who gets what messages). We’ll also have a quick look at Streams (mail sorting) and Connectors (how does mail get delivered between post offices).
