Hi everyone, my name is Mario Fiore Vitale and I recently joined Red Hat and the Debezium team.

I am a very curious person that follows a continuous learning approach, I like to keep growing my skills. I care about code quality and readability.

I have about 9+ years of experience and have worked for consultancy, startup, and enterprise product companies in different sectors. In my previously experience I had the chance to work on architecture re-design project to split a monolith into a microservices application. During this experience I gained experience with different technologies such as Kafka, Elasticsearch, Redis, Kubernetes, VictoriaMetrics, Spring Framework, and a bit of Cassandra.

Why Am I here?

First of all, I have always been fascinated by OSS and the power of the "community". During my career I have used a lot of OSS and when I had the chance to give back to the community I didn’t back down.

In recent years data are becoming more and more important, in terms of their role for companies but also in terms of quantity. The way we manage these data is now crucial. Data comes from different source, asynchronously and must be shared with different consumers. So we need to continuously process incoming data, and this is where Event Stream Processing comes in. Debezium can act as a facilitator for Stream processing, enabling a lot of useful use cases for modern software architecture. This is why I like Debezium.

I’m thrilled to be here and looking forward to working with this amazing community.

About Debezium

Debezium is an open source distributed platform that turns your existing databases into event streams, so applications can see and respond almost instantly to each committed row-level change in the databases. Debezium is built on top of Kafka and provides Kafka Connect compatible connectors that monitor specific database management systems. Debezium records the history of data changes in Kafka logs, so your application can be stopped and restarted at any time and can easily consume all of the events it missed while it was not running, ensuring that all events are processed correctly and completely. Debezium is open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
