Hello, San Francisco! And nice to see you again, Berlin.

By @danibentrup We're excited to announce that Apache Flink® enthusiasts have two events to look forward to in 2017, both fully-packed with the latest and greatest on Flink. Flink Forward, the premier Flink conference, is coming to Berlin for a third time on September 11-13, 2017. But before our annual event in Germany, we invite the data stream processing community to the first-ever Flink Forward San Francisco on April 10-11, 2017.

In this first edition of Flink Forward San Francisco, we'll connect with the already-thriving Flink community in the Bay Area and beyond. Our mission is to foster innovation and discussion with developers around the world in order to push Apache Flink to the next level. The call for submissions is already open and you are invited to share your knowledge, use cases, and best practices with the Apache Flink community and to shape the program of the first edition of Flink Forward San Francisco! Submit your talk here. Flink Forward San Francisco will take place at Hotel Kabuki, in the heart of Japantown in the city center.

Participants are invited to join one day of hands-on Flink training sessions on April 10 followed by one day of speaker sessions on April 11. The speaker sessions will be made up of technical talks covering Flink in the enterprise, Flink system internals, ecosystem integrations with Flink, and the future of the platform.

Last but not least, tickets are on sale here: https://sf-2017.flink-forward.org/registration/

From September 11-13, we welcome the stream data processing community to the third edition of Flink Forward Berlin at Kulturbrauerei in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin. Participants are invited to join one day of hands-on Flink training sessions on September 11 followed by two days of speaker sessions on September 12-13. Tickets are on sale now, and you can purchase your Early Bird Ticket here.

In 2017, we seek to provide a platform for developers, architects, engineering managers, and C-level executives to gain in-depth insights on Apache Flink. We hope that you'll join us.
