Title:
Building Streaming Data Pipelines with Apache Kafka

Abstract:
Data pipeline knowledge is important for streaming data pipeline in Apache Kafka. At this Meetups, Danica Fine (Senior Developer Advocate, Confluent) talks about the process of ingesting data from external systems using Kafka Connect, specifically on Change Data Capture (CDC). During this Meetup, we will learn how to transform Kafka data in real-time with ksqlDB stream processing, how to use ksqlDB to join the stream of real-time data to lookup tables. You will also develop an understanding of how Kafka Connect helps with data egress.
