Apache Kafka training provides a high-quality introduction to event processing with practical examples. Daniel Veselka, Deutsche Börse

The training was very pleasant and accessible. The lecturer was a professional who knew how to pass on his knowledge to people who know nothing about Apache Kafka or have only basic knowledge. He discussed the entire issue from the basics to advanced "pearls" and interesting things from practice. In case of any question or difficulty, the lecturer was very helpful and willing to give advice, solve the situation or direct to the correct solution of the given LAB. At the end of the training, I felt very enriched and with the feeling that I already know my way around the given topic and can start applying the acquired knowledge in my work practice.
