For our second meetup, we're very excited to have a streaming use-case from the Paul Scherrer Institut and host Kostas Kloudas, Apache Flink committer and software engineer at data Artisans.
During the first part of the meetup, we will look into the use-case requirements and current setup, and solution architecture.
During the second part of the meetup, Kostas will give as a talk on "Stateful Stream Processing with Apache Flink":
As Apache Flink continues to push the boundaries of stateful stream processing, an increasing number of users are starting to realize the potential of stateful stream processing as a promising paradigm for robust and reactive data analytics as well as event-driven applications. This talk aims at covering the general idea and motivations of stateful stream processing, and how Flink enables it with its powerful set of state management features and programming APIs.
After the talk, Kostas will provide his view on how the use-case can be implemented and deployed with Apache Flink.
Finally, we will have an open discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of both solutions.
Kostas is a Flink Committer, currently working with data Artisans to make Apache Flink® the best open-source stream processing engine and your data's best friend. Before joining data Artisans, Kostas was a postdoctoral researcher at IST in Lisbon and even before that he obtained a PhD in Computer Science from INRIA (France). His main research focus was in cloud storage and distributed processing.
