Kafka is more than just a messaging queue with storage. It goes beyond that and with technology from Confluent open source it has become a full-fledged data ETL and data streaming ecosystem.

It offers different ways to handle that data as well. In this presentation, we will discuss briefly a variety of technologies outside of Kafka Streams and KSQL from the Confluent stack that contributes to the overall streaming experience: Kafka Connect and Registry Schema
