Dev Talks-Varna

Come learn and explore more about Apache Kafka! You will learn how to build applications and what they can do, what Kafka’s role is in the modern data distribution pipeline and more. Network with other attendees while also enjoying a drink and a bite to eat as well. Looking forward to hosting you at our Varna office!


The lecture will be a dive into the popular Apache Kafka stream-processing software platform. We will explore the abstractions Kafka provides and the ecosystem that the Confluent platform brings around it.

Nice to have:

The demo in the lecture will be done using the Apache Kafka Java client, so basic Java experience is required.

What you will learn:

  • How to setup a local Kafka cluster that is scalable, robust and quick
  • How to build applications that can publish and subscribe to data
  • How to make a Kafka cluster in completely decoupled systems
  • What is the role of Kafka in the modern data distribution pipeline
  • Which are the core Kafka architectural concepts and components
  • Which are the Kafka developer APIs
