Use SQL on Apache Kafka with Confluent ksqlDB! Build an entire taxi booking application based on KSQL stream processing


  • Fundamental understanding of Kafka (see beginners course)

The latest release in the Apache Kafka Series!

Confluent ksqlDB has become an increasingly popular stream processing framework built upon Kafka Streams. It enables developers to write real-time stream processing applications with the ease of SQL. No Kafka Streams knowledge required!

For this course, I have partnered with KSQL expert Simon Aubury to bring you the ultimate KSQL course.

We'll take a project based approach for this course. You'll learn all the most important KSQL features by gradually building a KSQL taxi booking application!

  • KSQL Setup
  • KSQL Command Line
  • Streams with CSV, JSON and AVRO
  • Use the KSQL-Datagen utility
  • Manipulate streams
  • Create Tables
  • Perform Joins
  • Advanced KSQL: Rekeying, Merging Streams, Windowing, Geospatial
  • Extending KSQL: UDF & UDAF
  • Moving to Production
  • KSQL Operations

Note: To best enjoy this course, a Mac or Linux machine is preferred. Windows users will have special instructions and would be better by leveraging a Linux VM.
