Hello everyone, We are a startup, Instill AI, building an open-source ETL tool VDP particularly for unstructured visual data to empower the modern data stack with Vision AI. VDP has adopted Airbyte Protocol and integrated with Airbyte destination connectors. Just wanna give a shout-out to Airbyte community - Thank you for the open-source data movement solution. It has effectively helped VDP connect with structured data world and the community users can benefit from more versatile data stack to handle different type of data. We are also keen to collect feedback and design advice. Thank you very much!

I’d say it's fairly straightforward! The containerised connectors and the JSON Schema protocol really make the integration interface clean and clear. We simply followed the documentation and traced a bit of the source code. Spending a week or two for implementation, things work quite well so far. There are a few minor stalls but we could figure the issues out with the community resource on Slack and Discourse. VDP mainly uses the destination connectors and we are implementing source connectors for images/videos data now by ourselves, following the same Airbyte design principal.
