06-13, 16:50–17:10 (Europe/Berlin), Frannz Salon

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 and Kafka is not part of your stack? In this talk, we’ll walk through how we built a homegrown Postgres CDC connector at Materialize as an add-on alternative to CDC support through Kafka+Debezium.

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, a platform for managing remote fleets of Linux devices.
