Title of Talk:
Help, My Connector has a mind of its own!

Like a poorly trained pet, Connect sometimes doesn't listen to commands.

Have you ever tried to change a configuration on a dedicated
MirrorMaker 2 cluster, & still seen the old configuration appear in
the logs? This is an everyday occurrence for many Connect operators, & have been for years. To cope with it, most operators have resorted to applying an ancient IT strategy: Turn it off & back on again.

But that only provides temporary relief, you & everyone else will
have the same problem again until it's fixed upstream. We'll hear
stories of Connect & MM2, operators' sleepless nights, & the
upstream fixes that saved the day.

Greg Harris is an Apache Kafka Committer & PMC specializing in Kafka
Connect & connectors. He previously worked at Confluent developing
connectors & the Confluent Cloud Connect managed offering. He now works with the Aiven Open Source Program Office (OSPO), & is a
full-time open-source contributor to Apache Kafka.

Speaker for second talk:
Sophie Blee-Goldman, Founding Engineer, Responsive

Title of Talk:
Otter Pups: Shallow Dives into Kafka Streams

What's the word in the world of Kafka Streams these days? It can be hard to keep up & stay afloat on the river of KIPs flooding in, not to mention all the KIPs that get washed away! One day we're making great strides in error handling, the next day we're processing events asynchronously (on purpose??).
Note: You can think of this as a "prequel" my Current talk; if it wets your appetite for Kafka Streams, there's always more!

Sophie Blee-Goldman is a committer & PMC member of Apache Kafka with a focus on Kafka Streams. She is currently the Founding Engineer at Responsive which offers a platform for managed Kafka Streams, & before that worked at Confluent on (you guessed it) Kafka Streams, & a bit in the plain consumer client as well as Confluent's ksql.
Speaker for third talk:
Afzal Mazhar, Software Practice Lead, Confluent

Title of Talk:
Test Data Generators for Data Streaming Applications: what, why & how?

Having good test data is a challenge for any system but being able to test a streaming application with quality data is in a league of its own. Aside from the obvious question of it providing the functionality it was built for, how does it fare in areas specific to streaming? Areas like throughput & latency, windowing, state management, schema evolution & flow control have nuances not normally covered in testing talks.

In this talk, we will review common issues to look for, like exploding state size or late data arrival & how we can use test data generators to shape our test data to test for them. We will first look at the various data generators available to us & when does it make sense to use production data & when to write our own.

Afzal Mazhar is a seasoned technologist passionate about helping developers solve complex problems. With extensive experience in various industries, he understands the specific challenges developers face & provides insightful solutions.
