Apache Kafka with all its simple but needed offerings has left deep footprints in the software industry. And, with the ever-growing and maturing Kafka ecosystem, Kafka Connect allows us to focus on the data transformation rather than handling Kafka nitty-gritty details (which is mandatory if someone is using Kafka’s Producer/Consumer APIs). Kafka Connect in contrast, provides developers and operators a simple way of accessing, transforming and delivering data to connect an organization’s applications with their event streaming platform in the form of connectors.
Confluent's partner HashedIn Technologies has created many Kafka connectors. In this online talk, HashedIn shares their best practices on how to write great ones.
