Nice write-up, but it would be good to clarify that it is not Apache Kafka itself, which is implementing the CDC functionality here, but Debezium, which is a separate and completely independent project. You can use it with Kafka btw., but also with other messaging infrastructure like Kinesis, Google Cloud Pub/Sub, and others; or even as a library in your Java application.

That's very true. I will make it clearer in the introduction to avoid confusion. Thank you for the feedback.
