Hello from Germany as well

Hi everybody,

since it looks like it would make sense to introduce yourself a bit, here is my short introduction:

i am a software developer based in south west germany and was listening to a talk about ksqldb on the hamburg codetalks conferenct two years ago.
I was intrigued by the idea of having real time query capabilities with lots of stream data and thought it might be a good idea to try it for myself with the cofluent platform docker images as a “quick” start.
Listening to some of the 101 videos about kafka from Tim Berglund (which i really enjoyed watching/following) i decided to take a deeper dive into the concepts / using of kafka / ksqldb to evaluate if it would make sense using these in our business environment.

So i hope to get some better insights (or even help) with some of these topics to get knowledge about kafka and its ecosystems.

Thanks for having me here,

Hello Oliver,

Welcome to the community forum :slight_smile: . If you aren’t already aware we’ve built a site with loads of learning materials including examples, courses, and other resources at https://developer.confluent.io/

Good luck-

Hello Rick,
thanks for the welcome :slight_smile:
I already found the developer site and am currently working on/with the Confluent platform quick start.

It made me wonder a few times, checked it multiple times with the docker containers and always got stuck when using the web frontend to query the streams that you setup during that quickstart. i never came back with any results, but instead said it would still run…

So i thought i’d give the ksqldb-cli in the docker container a try and luckily i could get results in there. Since i don’t know if there is some weird special thing going on with my docker environment, it might probably be helpful for others to mention this option in the quickstart as well?
