The community is interested in hearing your story. Whether you are putting into production, a revolutionary project which will change the landscape of your industry, or if you just want to show off your just-for-fun personal project, we want to give you a chance to create a short digestable piece of content for the community to enjoy and learn from!

Alternatively, if you aren't looking to create a short video version of your use case, but it already exists elsewhere, you can simply submit a link to your use case (via a blog, video, etc), that we might want to include anyway!

What is a Community Short?

A Community Short is a short and digestible technical presentation of a case study from a member of the Confluent Community, which educates developers about some of the things that can be done with Data In Motion.

Below are two examples of how flexible we are in terms of what exactly that would look like.

How do I make a video?

You can film/present it however you’d like, but we suggest the easiest way is to share your screen on zoom and record yourself via zoom. We can also schedule a call (recommended for procrastinators), where we can give you some advice and record you ourselves (email community@confluent.io if you’re interested!)

What content should I include in my video?

Whilst we don't want to dictate the content of your Community short, it must be 1) purely technical, with no persuasive (or 'salesy') content and 2) fully designed for a developer audience.

Here is a suggested agenda

This mock agenda highlights some of the information we would suggest for you to include!

  • What do you do for your company, and what does your company do?
  • What problem does the following use case solve?
  • How are you using any of the following technologies for your use case? (Any Confluent technology like Confluent Cloud, Kafka Connect, ksqlDB etc and/or, Apache Kafka®)
  • What did you do? How does it work? (A demo, or some code would be great to include here if you have time!)

Where will it be shown?

It will live in our Architectural Case Studies Page on Confluent Developer. It may however be included in other external facing Confluent Material.

Is my video guaranteed to be published?

No, it is not. We have a right to not publish any material sent to us via this medium, for any reason. You'll always find out that we are publishing your content however.

Are there any examples?

There are examples linked below (and more can be found in the Architectural Case Studies Page, however you'll see how flexible we are about production quality and presentation style.

Will I own all the material I create and send to Confluent?

Yes, you will. However, by sending the Content to us, you agree to let us include it on our website and public facing channels.

If you for whatever reason want it taken down, please let us know at community@confluent.io, we will do so.

How do I send the video over, and what is needed with it?

Once you're okay with all the information above, it's time to send your Community Short over for us to publish!

What you need to submit with your Community Short

The form will give you more information about each field, but before you start, you will need a short bio for all creators of the video, a paragraph long write-up/summary of the content and links that showcase this project in other places (if they exist!)

Contained in the form are clear instructions to send over the video file to accompany your form results.

Submit your Community Short

if you aren't looking to create a short video version of your use case, but it already exists elsewhere, you can simply submit a link to your use case (via a blog, video, etc), that we might want to include anyway!
