Flink Forward Berlin 2024: CFP Open!


You're invited to Flink Forward Berlin 2024, your conference for all things streaming data and Apache Flink®️, organized by Ververica!

Updates from the Organizers: Part 1 

Ververica is proud to be the organizer of Flink Forward events, and over the next few months, we'll be sharing a few blogs with updates as we count down to the big event. 

This year, Ververica and the Apache Flink Community have a lot to celebrate. First, let’s take a quick trip through the history of Flink together. It all began 10 years ago in Berlin, where the first lines of Flink code quickly became an Apache Software Foundation Project that was shared with the open-source community worldwide. In the decade since, Apache Flink has grown in popularity amongst developers and engineers across multiple industries worldwide. As the original creators of Flink, Ververica is proud of our legacy and support of the open-source community, and each year we’ve organized Flink Forward events to bring the community together.
