5 reasons to join me at Flink Forward!


Real-time data streaming is a HOT topic, which comes as no surprise considering how stream processing helps companies create new business opportunities, strengthens their advantage over competitors, reduces operational overhead, and makes business operations more efficient and streamlined.

Data streaming allows businesses to continuously collect and analyze real-time data from various sources, allowing them to drive informed decisions with valuable insights powered by real-time capabilities. You certainly can’t talk long about stream processing without discussing Apache Flink®, the industry standard technology of choice.

Real-time is happening right now, and Flink Forward is *THE* conference supporting Apache Flink® and the stream processing community.

Ververica, the original creators of Apache Flink and the proud organizers of Flink Forward, are excited to invite you to join us in-person in Seattle, Washington at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Lake Washington from Monday, November 6th through Wednesday, November 8th, for two days of training and a full conference day.

With Flink Forward less than a month away, I’m most excited about meeting with other data streaming enthusiasts, sharing the latest technological advancements in the field, checking out curious use cases, and participating in the Apache Flink training before the conference day itself.

Here are my top 5 reasons for attending Flink Forward in Seattle:

  1. Expert Keynotes: First up on the Flink Forward stage, hear an overview of Apache Flink, learn about interesting upcoming updates and consider the future of streaming. Keep an eye out for more announcements of the keynote session here.
  2. 60+ Speaker Sessions: This year, sessions are spread over 5 breakout tracks specifically dedicated to Operations, Ecosystem, Technological Deep Dives, Use Cases, and a track dedicated entirely to the Finance and Banking industry. Don't miss speakers from Alibaba, Amazon Web Services, Bloomberg, DoorDash, Pinterest, Apple, JP Morgan Chase, Stripe, Lyft, and many more.
  3. Expo Hall: Join our sponsors and members of the data streaming community in the Expo Hall for the opportunity to meet informally with vendors from data streaming businesses. Find the help you need now and in the future, win swag, and browse booths filled with helpful solutions, experience, and ideas.
  4. Training: You’ll want to register quickly, as the seats are filling up fast! Join expert trainers November 6th and 7th for Flink training, including:
    • Troubleshooting and Performance Tuning for Apache Flink
    • Stream Processing with Flink SQL
    • Stream Processing with Apache Flink for Developers
  5. Flink Fest & Networking: No conference is complete without the opportunity to unwind and connect! Join us Wednesday evening (November 8th) for beverages and refreshments, enjoy music, and continue networking with your fellow attendees from the data streaming community.

Don’t wait! Join me November 6-8th to connect with data streaming experts, thought leaders, community members, star practitioners and more, all in-person and in real-time!
