I was recently a participant on a Confluent on-premesis kafka course. In this series I take a look at converting the java from the course to scala.

The confluent course was fun - but I thought it could be a nice exercise to convert from java to scala - step by step - and maybe learn some new scala stuff on the way. It will assume some level of kafka knowledge - what is a producer, consumer, topic etc.
The series goes through conversion of some basic java kafka clients to scala - step by step.
It is important to understand that it is written from my viewpoint - someone who has played with scala, likes it, but has never really had time to get into it.
