If you want to learn how to use Apache Kafka and the different tools in the Kafka ecosystem in the easiest possible manner, this book is for you. Some programming experience with Java is required to get the most out of this book.

What You Will Learn:

- Learn the basics of Apache Kafka from scratch
- Use the basic building blocks of a streaming application
- Design effective streaming applications with Kafka using Spark, Storm and Heron
- Understand the importance of a low-latency, high-throughput, and fault-tolerant messaging system
- Make effective capacity planning while deploying your Kafka Application
- Understand and implement the best security practices

Apache Kafka is a popular distributed streaming platform that acts as a messaging queue or an enterprise messaging system. It lets you publish and subscribe to a stream of records, and process them in a fault-tolerant way as they occur.

This book is a comprehensive guide to designing and architecting enterprise-grade streaming applications using Apache Kafka and other big data tools. It includes best practices for building such applications, and tackles some common challenges such as how to use Kafka efficiently and handle high data volumes with ease. This book first takes you through understanding the type messaging system and then provides a thorough introduction to Apache Kafka and its internal details. The second part of the book takes you through designing streaming application using various frameworks and tools such as Apache Spark, Apache Storm, and more. Once you grasp the basics, we will take you through more advanced concepts in Apache Kafka such as capacity planning and security.

By the end of this book, you will have all the information you need to be comfortable with using Apache Kafka, and to design efficient streaming data applications with it.
