This course will teach everything about Apache Kafka.

How Apache Kafka differs from traditional/regular message broker services like Apache Active MQ or RabbitMQ.

We will also learn about different scenarios in which you can use Apache Kafka and achieve your functionality.

We will implement Apache Kafka with SpringBoot and implement a scenario where we will work with both producer and consumer.

In Apache Kafka, we will go through different topics like:

1. What is Apache Kafka

2. Why do we need Apache Kafka

3. History of Apache Kafka

4. Advantages of Apache Kafka

5. How Apache Kafka differs from traditional messaging brokers like Activ MQ or RabbitMQ
