The Confluent Kafka Platform is a data transmission environment that allows organize and manage large amounts of data, as well as the second, the entry points of organizations in social networks. With Confluent, this growing flow of data is organized in Publication / Subscription, often unstructured, but incredibly valuable, Kafka Confluent becomes a unified and easily accessible data platform that is always available for many uses throughout the organization. These uses can easily be covered in Big Data analysis in batches with Hadoop and the feeding of real-time monitoring systems, up to the more traditional large-volume data integration tasks that require a high-performance backbone, extraction, transformation and load (ETL). Confluent Kafka offer customers different training classes, in particular, for administrators (implementation), for developers and the most modern communication of data with KSQL.

In this three-day Apache Kafka developer workshop, we will learn how to create an application that can publish data and subscribe to a Kafka group. Learn the role of Kafka in the modern line of data distribution, analyze the concepts and components of the Kafka architecture and review the APIs for the Kafka developers. The course also covers other components in the wider Confluent platform, such as Kafka Connect and Kafka Streams.

PUE is official Training Partner of Confluent, is authorized by this multinational company to deliver official training in Confluent technologies.

PUE is accredited and recognized to deliver consulting services and mentoring on implementing Confluent solutions in business environment with the added value in the practical business-centered focus of knowledge transferred from the official courses.
