Kafka Connect is a framework for connecting Kafka with external systems such as databases, key-value stores, search indexes, and file systems. Using Kafka Connect you can use existing connector implementations for common data sources and sinks to move data into and out of Kafka. This talk will give an introduction the architecture of Kafka Connect, how to build custom Kafka Connectors, and how Kafka Connect can integrate with Kafka and Stream Processing for modern, real-time ETL and micro services workloads. We will also examine:

  • Connectors demonstrating how easy it is to get data into/out of Kafka topics with minimal coding.
  • Differences of running standalone Kafka client apps vs. running in connector framework.
  • Connector framework benefits and capabilities around HA/failover, scaling up/down etc.
  • Provide examples of building custom connectors.
