Vortrag: Lessons Learned Building a Connector Using Kafka Connect
While many companies are embracing Apache Kafka as their core event streaming platform they may still have events they want to unlock in other systems. Kafka Connect provides a common API for developers to do just that and the number of open-source connectors available is growing rapidly. In this session I will introduce Kafka Connect and share my top tips for building a Kafka Connect connector. I’ll explain how Kafka Connect works, how a connector is structured and some of the things to consider when providing configuration options. This session will be useful to those that are keen to write their own connectors, but also for those that are looking to understand what makes an effective Kafka connector.
