IBM Event Streams is the distributed streaming real-time data platform Apache Kafka, from IBM.

Node-RED is a visual flow-based development tool, with nodes that you drag and drop onto a canvas and wire together. It’s useful for loads of tasks, such as quick and flexible prototyping.

In this post, I’ll show how Event Streams and Node-RED work well together. You can use Node-RED to quickly and easily create flows that consume messages from Kafka topics, or that process events from different sources and produce the output to Kafka topics.
