Petros is a software engineer at Materialize where he started the development of the Postgres CDC connector as a demo project. He is the co-founder and former CTO of balena.io, a platform for managing remote fleets of Linux devices.
"Change Data Capture (CDC) has become a mundane commodity, much in part due to the ever-rising success of Debezium. But what happens when you want to keep track of changes in your upstream database without having a message broker in your stack? In this talk, we’ll walk through how we built a direct Postgres CDC connector at Materialize to provide an alternative to our CDC support through Kafka+Debezium."
