- High performance - confluent-kafka-go is a lightweight wrapper around librdkafka, a finely tuned C client.
- Reliability - There are a lot of details to get right when writing an Apache Kafka client. We get them right in one place (librdkafka) and leverage this work across all of our clients (also confluent-kafka-python and confluent-kafka-dotnet).
- Supported - Commercial support is offered by Confluent.
- Future proof - Confluent, founded by the creators of Kafka, is building a streaming platform with Apache Kafka at its core. It’s high priority for us that client features keep pace with core Apache Kafka and components of the Confluent Platform.
The Golang bindings provides a high-level Producer and Consumer with support for the balanced consumer groups of Apache Kafka 0.9 and above.
