by Tomasz Nurkiewicz
Kafka is not a message broker. However, it can be used as such very effectively. Instead, I’d like to think about as a very peculiar database.

In this episode I am focusing on the architecture and internals of Kafka. The best way to understand Kafka is by examining how it works.
