Update: the recordings for Flink Forward Global 2020 are now available on Youtube! 🎥
... October in Berlin means one thing: Flink Forward. For the second time this year, we're hosting a virtual conference for the Flink community (old and new!) to mingle, share and learn about the latest in Apache Flink.
Here's what you can expect:
// Keynotes from Epic Games, LinkedIn, Citigroup, Ververica and Alibaba // Roadmap updates and deep-dives from the core Flink maintainers // Live sessions and Q&A with companies like Netflix, Spotify, Pinterest and Stripe // Interactive coding sessions (incl. a live code contribution to Flink!) // And, of course, Flink Fest! :beers: The conference runs from 8:00 PDT/17:00 CEST to 13:30 PDT/22:30 CEST
Putting together a schedule that maximizes what you can * see is always a puzzling task, so I'll share with you some of the talks I've added to mine!
You can find the complete program on the Flink Forward website.
From handling 200 million metrics per second in the virtual backstage of Travis Scott's massive Fortnite concert to powering Data Science and Machine Learning (ML) at scale, this edition brings you some more real-world examples of how far and wide you can take Flink:
Real-Time Metrics at Fortnite Scale
Powering OLAP at Uber using Apache Flink (and Apache Pinot!)
Lessons learned from teams big and small about running, scaling and maintaining Flink in production. Expect fast-evolving self-service platforms, productionizing Flink on Kubernetes and a whole lot of sessions on creating infrastructure for ML feature generation and model serving:
What's new in Flink? And what's cooking? As usual, a big chunk of the sessions at Flink Forward is dedicated to core Flink updates, where you'll get up to speed with the roadmap vision, the state of the community and the growing ecosystem surrounding Flink:
* In case you miss a session you really wanted to check out, don't worry: a playlist will be available on Youtube in the weeks after the conference.
