Getting started with the workshop

This guided workshop teaches you how to consume and produce Kafka messages using the Avro format. The workshop provides a step-by-step guide to gaining access to a fully managed Kafka instance, uploading artifacts to the managed OpenShift Service Registry instance, and running a couple of Quarkus applications that produce and consume Kafka messages in Avro format. The Avro schema is stored in the Service Registry instance. Figure 22 shows an architecture diagram of the solution.
