Confluent Community Catalysts

Welcome to the Confluent Community Catalyst program!

A Confluent Community Catalyst is a person who invests relentlessly in the Confluent and/or Apache Kafka® communities. They make it a habit of contributing knowledge, enthusiasm, support, encouragement, mentoring and sometimes even code to one of the most innovative communities on earth. The Catalysts are some of the most elite contributors who are willing to multiply and empower the developer community and share the goodness of event streaming platforms with others.
