Increasing institutional knowledge is a smart long-term investment for companies and their IT teams. In fact, it helps to attract and retain top performing employees and keeps employees engaged in their work. Most importantly, proper education empowers technology teams to build reliable systems providing economic benefit to their company by reducing downtime and eliminating inefficiencies.

How Kafka Training Works

Our training engagements are personalized for your company’s exact needs. We start from where your employees are currently proficient and build on their skills from there. Training typically occurs remotely through video conference, and an assigned engineer is available between training sessions via email and messaging service for timely advice.

Training For Technologies That Support Kafka

In addition to teaching your team about Apache Kafka optimization and best practices, we can provide education on supporting technologies such as Zookeeper, Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Docker, and others.

Providing training on the technologies that support and interact with Kafka is essential to optimizing your data architecture.  For instance, monitoring Kafka is critical for tracking system performance.  One of the best–and also free–ways to monitor Kafka is with another open source software, the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana).
