Video description

Currently one of the hottest projects across the Hadoop ecosystem, Apache Kafka is a distributed, real-time data system that functions in a manner similar to a pub/sub messaging service, but with better throughput, built-in partitioning, replication, and fault tolerance. In this video course, host Gwen Shapira shows developers and administrators the basics for setting up a Kafka cluster and writing producers and consumers in Kafka.
