Learning Kafka: Kafka Connect + Wikipedia

I’ve been developing backend software for almost 10 years already and never had a chance to work closely with Apache Kafka. After a couple of technical interviews recently I’ve realized that it’s a significant gap in my experience. So, I’ve decided to learn it by playing with publicly available Wikipedia’s recent changes event stream. Join me in this article, where I’ll be developing a Kafka Connect application listening for the latest Wikipedia edits and storing them in a Kafka topic!
