Hi everyone,

Kristen from Manning here--I'm the Development Editor for Kafka in Action and I hope you are enjoying this book so far. I want to follow up with readers to make sure that you feel satisfied with the coverage of topics and the length of the chapters. Any feedback on this that you might have would be useful to us in making sure that we are creating the most effective guide to learning about Kafka possible. Thanks for your help and happy learning!

Will the book cover Kafka implementation pattern?
Like, introducing a project with a set of requirements and show how Kafka can fit right in the project.

I would say that there is a mix per showing how Kafka is used. No one example project is used throughout the entire work-the book covers various examples.

Chapter 3 is really setup to show how Kafka works in a fictional company with various requirements to a project and how Kafka can be used in various scenarios.

Most of the other chapters try and use short examples that make the topic we are discussing at that moment concrete.

If you can with livebook tokens, take a peek at Chapter 3 if you are interested to see some examples!
