What we're about

This Meetup Group will focus on the Apache Kafka® technology and its ecosystem, also allowing its members to interact and share their use cases, dos and don’ts, how tos, etc.

We will also hear about the Confluent Platform, Confluent Cloud and topics like Kafka’s Connect API and streaming data pipelines, ksqlDB, Kafka’s Streams API and stream processing, Security, Microservices and anything else related to Apache Kafka®.

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
