Flink Forward is the premier conference for Apache Flink® that brings together CTOs/CIOs, developers, data architects, data scientists, Apache Flink core committers and the open source stream processing community.

At Flink Forward, participants have the opportunity to hear from experts who have built scalable streaming infrastructure and enterprise-grade applications, view live demos and attend in-depth technical talks on the internals of stream processing technologies. Participants learn how global companies like Airbnb, Alibaba, Amazon, eBay, IBM, ING, Microsoft, Netflix, Lyft, and Uber use Flink as the stream processing engine of choice for large-scale stateful applications, including real-time analytics, real- time search and content ranking, fraud/anomaly/threat detection.
