6:25 pm - 6:30 pm: Welcome by Rassul Fazelat


6:30 pm - 8:00 pm: Talk by Stephan Ewen


Talk description:  The talk will consist of two parts:



1. The first part discusses some fundamental patterns and problems behind continuous streaming applications in general, and how we built Apache Flink 1.0 to handle these problems. The talk will dig into questions around latency critical applications, fault tolerance and processing guarantees (exactly once, how to achieve then end-to-end), into processing data streams by "event time", or "processing time", handling out-of-order event streams, and about migrating, repairing, or versioning live streaming programs.



2. The second part of the talk is a technical deep dive into Apache Flink, discussing how the functionality discussed from a user and application point of view is actually implemented. The talk will cover the integration with Apache Kafka, the mechanisms behind fault-tolerance and high-availability, event time and windowing, savepoints and program reinstatements, as well as techniques for managing large online state.



Bio: Stephan Ewen is a committer in the Apache Flink project and co-founder and CTO of data Artisans. Before founding data Artisans, Stephan was leading the development of Flink since the early days of the project. Stephan holds a PhD in Computer Science from TU Berlin.
