Title of Talk: From Zero to Hero with Kafka Connect

Integrating Apache Kafka with other systems in a reliable and scalable way is often a key part of a streaming platform. Fortunately, Apache Kafka includes the Connect API that enables streaming integration both in and out of Kafka. Like any technology, understanding its architecture and deployment patterns is key to successful use, as is knowing where to go looking when things aren't working.

Robin is a Developer Advocate at Confluent, as well as an Oracle Groundbreaker Ambassador. His career has always involved data, from the old worlds of COBOL and DB2, through the worlds of Oracle and Hadoop, and into the current world with Kafka. His particular interests are analytics, systems architecture, performance testing and optimization. He blogs at and and can be found tweeting grumpy geek thoughts as Outside of work he enjoys drinking good beer and eating fried breakfasts, although generally not at the same time.
