Confluent Training:
Stream Processing Using Kafka Streams & KSQL

Course Objectives

During this instructor-led, hands-on course, you will learn how to use Confluent KSQL to transform, enrich, filter and aggregate streams of real-time data using a SQL-like language. You will also learn how to use the Apache Kafka Streams library to build streaming applications. Furthermore, you will learn how to test, monitor, secure and scale those streaming applications. You will learn how these applications integrate with the Confluent Platform powered by Apache Kafka, Kafka Connect, Confluent Schema Registry, Confluent REST Proxy as well as the ConfluentControlCenter. You will learn the role of streaming in the modern data distribution pipeline, discuss architectural concepts and components of KSQL and Kafka Streams.
