Ask Confluent is back! From questions on Apache Kafka®, data integration, and log aggregation, to potential interview questions that Tim would ask if he were to interview himself, anything goes.
If you're already a Kafka expert (or any type of expert), think about becoming a speaker. Gwen and Tim talk through how to submit a proposal and get accepted to conferences. As experienced conference goers, they explain that what makes a successful talk is making sure you present for the attendee instead of making it about yourself. In essence, what can your idea or code do to help someone else?
From there, the pair chat about the secret for a long marriage, REST Proxy and where it exists in Confluent Operator, how Kafka relates to Splunk when aggregating logs, and whether Tim can start making some use case based video content so that people can better understand Kafka and how it works. For those who have just started integrating Kafka, Tim and Gwen also provide some pointers about how to go about understanding it.
