I am basically brand new to the Confluent, Kafka and everything else. Trying to grasp all the information is like trying to read the manual for a fire hose whilst things are going on fire! (Nothing is actually on fire and so far I have failed to break much, so props to the team for that!)
I am so old that I still try to stick with not giving out personal information online if I can avoid it.
I remember this when it was all green screens, Usenet, and VAXen.
