Getting started

The ksqlDB Quick Start is the easiest way to get up and running with ksqlDB. It demonstrates a simple workflow that creates an event stream on an Apache Kafka® topic and uses SQL statements to write streaming queries against events in Kafka.

The quick start shows how to:

  1. Get ksqlDB
  2. Start ksqlDB Server
  3. Start ksqlDB interactive CLI
  4. Create a stream
  5. Run a continuous query over the stream
  6. Populate the stream with events
