  • Explain how Kafka became the predominant publish/subscribe messaging system that it is today
  • Introduce Kafka's most recent additions to its set of enterprise-level features
  • Demonstrate how to evolve your Kafka implementation into a complete real-time event streaming platform that functions as the central nervous system for your organisation
