This course does not require any prior knowledge of Apache Kafka. We have taken enough care to explain all necessary and complex Kafka Architecture concepts to help you come up to speed and grasp the content of this course.

About the Course

I am creating Kafka Streams – Real-time Stream Processing to help you understand the stream processing in general and apply that knowledge to Kafka Streams Programming. This course is based on my book on the same subject with the same title. My Book is already published and is available with all major online retailers as an eBook and Paperback.

My approach to creating this course is a progressive common-sense approach to teaching a complex subject. By using this unique approach, I will help you to apply your general ability to perceive, understand, and reason the concepts progressively that I am explaining in this course.

Who should take this Course?

Kafka Streams – Real-time Stream Processing course is designed for software engineers willing to develop a stream processing application using the Kafka Streams library. I am also creating this course for data architects and data engineers who are responsible for designing and building the organization’s data-centric infrastructure. Another group of people is the managers and architects who do not directly work with Kafka implementation, but they work with the people who implement Kafka Streams at the ground level.

Kafka Version used in the Course

This course is using the Kafka Streams library available in Apache Kafka 2.x. I have tested all the source code and examples used in this course on Apache Kafka 2.3 open source distribution. Some examples of this course also make use of the Confluent Community Version of Kafka. We will be using Confluent Community Version to explain and demonstrate functionalities that are only available in the Confluent Platform, such as Schema Registry and Avro Serdes.

Source Code, Development IDE, Build Tool, Logging, and Testing Tools

This course is fully example-driven, and I will be creating many examples in the class. The source code files for all the examples are included in your study material.

This course will be making extensive use of IntelliJ IDEA as the preferred development IDE. However, based on your prior experience, you should be able to work with any other IDE designed for Java application development.

This course will be using Apache Maven as the preferred build tool. However, based on your prior experience, you should be able to use any other build tool designed for Java applications.

This course also makes use of Log4J2 to teach you industry-standard log implementation in your application.

We will be using JUnit5, which is the latest version of JUnit for implementing Unit Test Cases.

Example and Exercises

Working examples and exercises are the most critical tool to convert your knowledge into a skill. I have already included a lot of examples in the course. This course also consists of objective questions and some programming assignments as and when appropriate. These exercises will help you to validate and check your concepts and apply your learning to solve programming problems.

Who this course is for:

  • Software Engineers and Architects who are willing to design and develop a Stream Processing Application using Kafka Streams Library.
  • Java Programmers aspiring to learn everything necessary to start implementing real-time streaming applications using Apache Kafka

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
