Talk: Kafka Connect - Diving into the Deep End
Abstract: Perhaps you have heard of Kafka Connect and think it would be a great fit in your application's architecture, but you like to know how things work before you propose them to your team? Perhaps you know enough Connect to be dangerous, but you haven't had the time to really understand all the moving pieces? This meetup talk is for you! We'll briefly introduce Connect to the uninitiated, and then jump in to underlying concepts and considerations you should make when running Connect in production! We'll even run a live demo! What could go wrong!?
Online Meetup Etiquette:
•Please unmute yourself when you have a question.
•Please hold your questions until the end of the presentation or use the zoomchat!
•Please arrive on time as zoom meetings can become locked for many reasons (though if you get locked out a recording will be available, but you may have to wait a little while for it!)
