Tim Berglund demonstrates how to use Kafka Connect and Kafka Streams to build real-world, real-time streaming data pipelines—using Kafka Connect to ingest data from a relational database into Kafka topics as the data is being generated and then using Kafka Streams to process and enrich the data in real time before writing it out for further analysis.
You’ll learn how easy it is to use Connect to ingest and export data (no code required), and how the Kafka Streams domain-specific language (DSL) means that developers can concentrate on business logic without worrying about the low-level plumbing of streaming data processing. And because Streams is a Java library, developers can build real-time applications without needing a separate cluster to run an external stream processing framework.
