One of the most high-quality on-line courses I ever took.

This training was awesome and learnt many things about Kafka though having 0 years of experience in this technology.

Home Testimonial 2

Outstanding on all fronts!

I wish all courses were that well presented. I especially appreciate the hands-on sections. I was able to get everything up and running with ease.

Home Testimonial 3

Excellent course. Training material is engaging and also the trainer makes it easy to understand the core concepts. Moreover, if you have any questions, he not only points it out but rather elaborates to make the concepts clear.

Home About

I am a Solutions Architect, Consultant and Software Developer that has a particular interest in all things related to Big Data, Cloud & API. I am also a many-times best seller instructor on Udemy for my courses in Apache Kafka and AWS.

I love Apache Kafka. I sit on the 2019 Program Committee organizing the Kafka Summit in New York, London and San Francisco. I am also an active member of the Apache Kafka community, authoring blogs on Medium and a guest blog for Confluent.

I also am an AWS Certified Developer, SysOps & Solutions Architect, and love to teach people how to use the AWS properly, to get them ready for their AWS certifications, and most importantly for the real world.
