Greetings, developers! This week’s roundup of deep dives and hot takes includes an article on GPT-4 and streaming data, a Twitter thread on Apache Flink® vs. ksqlDB, and another great newsletter to subscribe to if you want to microdose Kafka knowledge. A note: as always, we appreciate community contributions to this newsletter! If you’ve got content you’d love to promote here, please let us know by emailing email@example.com!
Did you know that when you use kcat without a -p flag you'll consume from all available partitions?
❯ kcat -C -b mybroker -t topic_name % Reached end of topic topic_name  at offset 8378 % Reached end of topic topic_name  at offset 7959 % Reached end of topic topic_name  at offset 7523 % Reached end of topic topic_name  at offset 9261 % Reached end of topic topic_name  at offset 9137
What if you wanted to only consume from one partition? The -p flag comes in handy:
❯ kcat -C -b mybroker -t topic_name -p 2 % Reached end of topic topic_name  at offset 7959
Apache Kafka 3.5 is now available!
