Workshop - Stream Processing with Apache Flink

YOW! Data 2020 - 29 Apr

Register Now

Apache Flink is a distributed stream processor that makes it easy to implement stateful stream processing applications and operate them at scale.

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of stream processing with Apache Flink. You will implement a stream processing application that ingests events from Apache Kafka and submit it to a (Docker) local Flink cluster for execution. You will learn how to manage and operate a continuously running application and how to access job and framework metrics.

In the afternoon, we will have a look at Flink's streaming SQL interface. You will submit SQL queries that are evaluated over unbounded data streams, producing results that are continuously updated as more and more data is ingested.
