Thanks for your tutorial.
Here, could you describe in detail the port 9092?
And so is this a Kafka server or client?
I checked the repo, but confusing because it's different than nestjs official documentation for Kafka.

Here in this example, I am running kafka server in docker container in local machine. ( .
Application to kafka server communication happens using 9092 port.
I have updated readme file to make easy understanding. I added new Kafdrop UI docker-compose to monitor kafka.
Nestjs kafka documentation has different approach which was very confusing and make kafka integration more confuse.
