2. Create a new cluster
3. Review Cluster Settings
4. Connect Confluent Kafka with Azure Blob Storage (Sink option)
Config your connector to sink to Blob Storage.
Check to see if your connector is running
Check your consumers, as you can see below we can see my topic called test1.
If your connector is running you will see files coming from Kafka inside your blob container.
5. Below you can see two python codes (one to produce and the other to consume events)
Link for sample codes here.
6. Destroy your cluster to save money after your demo.
