Kafka in Action

Book Description:

Kafka in Action is a practical, hands-on guide to building Kafka-based data pipelines. Filled with real-world use cases and scenarios, this book probes Kafka’s most common use cases, ranging from simple logging through managing streaming data systems for message routing, analytics, and more.

In systems that handle big data, streaming data, or fast data, it’s important to get your data pipelines right. Apache Kafka is a wicked-fast distributed streaming platform that operates as more than just a persistent log or a flexible message queue.
