What we're about

This group is for everyone interested in Kafka and the Kafka ecosystem. The Kafka broker, Kafka Streaming, Kafka Connect, The Confluent Data Platform, Apache Avro and anything else that publishes to and subscribes from Kafka. Kafka is a critical part of any high throughput data and analytics platform and a great general messaging platform. Come learn from others about how to provision, run, scale and connect to this popular open-source messaging platform.

If you’re new to Kafka, get a quick intro and then find all the resources you’ll need to continue your development at http://bit.ly/Confluent-Developer-io

We want this to be an active platform for the community, so if you would like to participate by speaking, hosting, etc, please let us know on community@confluent.io
