Everything you need to know to get started with applying change data capture to database systems and APIs.
Change Data Capture (CDC) is a technique that has been gaining a lot of attention in recent years. It enables developers to capture and replicate data changes that occur in a database or a web API in real-time, which makes it a powerful tool for building robust and responsive applications. However, getting started with CDC can be a daunting task, and that’s why we are thrilled to announce our new technical guide on Change Data Capture.
Our guide is a comprehensive resource that includes more than 20 pages of curated technical content, aimed at helping developers to understand the concepts behind CDC and apply it to MySQL, PostgreSQL, and web APIs. Whether you are new to CDC or have some experience with it, our guide covers everything you need to know to get started with CDC and build powerful, data-driven applications.
Our guide is divided into three main sections, each of which covers a different aspect:
Section 1: Introduction to Change Data Capture
This section provides an overview of CDC and its benefits. We cover the different types of CDC, including diff-cased CDC, query-based CDC, trigger-based CDC, and log-based CDC, and explain how they work. We also discuss the advantages of using CDC in your applications and provide examples of how CDC can be used to solve common data integration challenges.
Section 2: Implementing CDC with PostgreSQL
This section is a step-by-step guide that shows you how to set up and configure CDC for PostgreSQL databases. We cover the different approaches to CDC, including log-based CDC, trigger-based CDC, and query-based CDC, and explain how to choose the right approach for your application.
Section 3: Implementing CDC with MySQL
The next section is a step-by-step guide that shows you how to implement CDC with MySQL databases. Again, we cover the different approaches to CDC, including log-based CDC, trigger-based CDC, and query-based CDC, and explain how to choose the right approach for your MySQL use case.
Section 4: Implementing CDC with Web APIs
In the last main section, we show you how to apply CDC to web APIs using Shopify’s product API as an example.
