The long-awaited update to the immensely popular Kafka: The Definitive Guide. Confluent is happy to announce that we will be providing new early release chapters of Kafka: The Definitive Guide v2 every month until the completion of the new e-book in Summer 2021. Once you download these first six chapters, you'll be notified as new ones are released.
Included in this early release preview is:
As with v1, this comprehensive e-book will give you a full introduction to Apache Kafka, the distributed, publish-subscribe queue for handling real-time data feeds. Learn how Kafka works, what it’s used for, internal architecture, and how to take full advantage of Kafka Stream processing technology.
Authors Gwen Shapira, Neha Narkhede, Todd Palino, and Rajini Sivaram show you how to deploy production Kafka clusters; secure, tune, and monitor them; write rock-solid applications that use Kafka; and build stream-processing applications that help you leverage the power of real-time data.
