Title of Talk:
Building Out Your Kafka Developer CDC Ecosystem

Are you interested in exploring Kafka and Change Data Capture? Let's walk through setting up a Dockerized Kafka Cluster with Change Data Capture so you can explore it on your own.

This setup will leverage Confluent's Docker Images, multiple databases, connectors, ksqlDB, and more. In addition to exploring this setup, Kafka Connect Simple Message Transformation and ksqlDB user-defined functions will also be explored.

Exploring CDC leveraging everything running locally on your machine can liberate your exploration; no worries about truncating a table and impacting anyone but yourself.

• Running Kafka with Change Data Capture in a self-contained environment.
• Building a Simple Message Transformation
• Building a ksqlDB User Defined Function
• Setting up a Connector for
• JDBC Source & Sink Connectors
• Debezium's MySQL Change Data Capture
• Oracle w/LogMiner and Erdemcer's Opensource "Kafka Connect Oracle" connector

Neil Buesing is the VP of Streaming Technologies for Object Partners (OPI). His focus is on real-time streaming technologies, primarily Apache Kafka, and was a Kafka Summit presenter at Kafka Summit 2020 speaking on "Synchronous Commands over Apache Kafka". He is a member of the Confluent Community Catalyst Class of 2020-21.
