In this lesson, we will have the opportunity to work with a real Kafka cluster using the command line tools provided through Kafka. Ultimately, Kafka makes it easy to build applications that interact with the Kafka cluster, but it also provides some command line tools. We can use these to create ad-hoc producers and consumers, plus perform a variety of administrative tasks that require you to interact with the cluster.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
