Airbyte announces $26M Series A for open-source data connector platform

If Firebolt is a welcome newcomer in the cloud data warehouse space, Airbyte is playing the same role in data ingestion. Stitch, the early champion of open source data ingestion with its Singer framework, is something less of a player than it once was after being acquired by Talend a few years ago. It's the pairing of Meltano and Airbyte who are looking to take up that mantle and compete with much larger players building proprietary products. Competition + openness == nothing but good for the ecosystem.

Over the past ~year there has been a lot of ink spilled in the dbt Community Slack (#tools-data-loaders) about the maturity of these newer platforms. Worth catching up there and joining in the conversation if you're considering them.
