Involvement in the community

Vinod has been working with Apache Kafka since 2015 and specifically with Confluent platform since 2019 when he began engaging with the Kafka community with individuals from diverse engineering backgrounds at his workplace.

This is where he got motivated to get deeper into the topic and create video tutorial contents on Apache Kafka and help the community since there is not enough free and high quality video contents on the internet for people who wants to get into Kafka quickly at ease both for Kafka developers and Kafka administrators. I make a structured tutorial on YouTube that helped lots of people to start their learning path with Kafka and engage with them frequently providing solutions. My tutorials on Kafka security received overwhelming response so far among the other Kafka contents. I also received personal messages from the community where people informed me that my contents had impact on their interviews for Kafka jobs. One of goals is to make my channel as the goto channel for Apache Kafka.
