Apache Kafka is a popular event streaming platform, but the learning curve can be a bit steep for newcomers. We recently published a tutorial covering the Confluent provider that may help you get up and running more quickly. With the Confluent provider you can manage hosted Kafka clusters, service accounts, and even topics, using the Terraform workflow.
If you have any trouble or if the tutorial sparks questions feel free to reply here. I’ll do my best to answer.
