  • Getting Started as a Kafka Developer
    6 projects | | 30 Jan 2023
    Once you’ve decided on a language to focus on, it’s time to start filling those knowledge gaps. Don’t be discouraged by this step. We all have knowledge gaps, and filling them can be very rewarding. First, you’ll want to make sure you have a good understanding of Kafka basics. Fortunately, there are many resources to help you with this. A web search will turn up many great books and other resources. And, of course, Confluent Developer offers interactive courses ranging from introductory (Apache Kafka 101) to advanced (Kafka Internals), full documentation, and other content to help you get started.

    Are you getting ahead of yourself to use Kafka Connect? No, definitely not! Kafka Connect is part of Apache Kafka so you're just learning more Kafka :) The connector plugins vary in author and licence. There is a mixture of vendor and community-written plugins. The Twitter one you found is great - I've used it in the past several times for projects. If you want another set of code to look at using it there is this repo here and related blog

    should I be reading a different material for a first Kafka project and working with a different kind of setup? Now, I can't be unbiased on this one ;) One of the things we're doing with Confluent Developer is to try and create a resource for people to learn Kafka from the ground up, whether they ultimately decide to pursue it on Confluent or not. The fundamentals of Kafka that you'll be learning are going to be as applicable whether you're using Apache Kafka self-managed, or Confluent, or AWS' MSK, or whatever else. Personally I'd this stage I'd use whatever setup you find easiest and least friction to your learning journey. As u/louisvell mentioned, /u/stephanemaarek's courses on Udemy are also very popular, if you wanted a "second opinion" on how to approach learning Kafka.
