About Flink Forward

Flink Forward is the conference for Apache Flink and stream processing communities. Join core Flink committers, new and experienced users, and thought leaders to share experiences and best practices in stream processing, real-time analytics, event-driven applications, and managing mission-critical Flink deployments in production.

At Flink Forward, participants have the opportunity to hear from experts who have built scala-ble streaming infrastructure and enterprise-grade applications, view live demos and attend in-depth technical talks on the internals of stream processing technologies. Participants learn how global companies like Alibaba, Cisco, Google, IBM, ING, King and Netflix use Flink as the stream processing engine of choice for large-scale stateful applications, including real-time analytics, real-time search and content ranking, fraud/anomaly/threat detection.

Flink Forward kicks off with one day of training sessions on April 9. Our one day trainings are each led by members of the data Artisans team. A higher quality training session is hard to find! You’ll take part in a hands-on learning session led by true experts.

The training day is followed by one day of conference with keynotes and talks on production Flink use cases, to Apache Flink® internals, to the growth of the Flink ecosystem, and many more topics on stream processing and real-time analytics. After an inspiring day of technical sessions we invite you to join our Flink Fest in the evening on April 10.
