When you want to start developing applications using Apache Kafka, you can just go to http://kafka.apache.org, download the latest binary, unpack it, and use it. But sometimes you need something more. For example a Kafka cluster with multiple nodes to be able to use replication or test fail-overs. Or you might need to change the configuration - maybe to enable encryption or authentication. And that is not so easy anymore. Using Strimzi with Minikube can make things much easier. You can deploy multi-node cluster with enabled security very easily with just few lines of YAML. Watch our video to get started.
