Training: Intro & System Setup
In the first 90 minutes of the Flink Workshop, we will give a general introduction into Apache Flink.
Afterwards, we«™ll help the participants to set up their laptops with the required tools for developing Flink applications.
Specifically you will
- learn about the required software
- generate a Maven project with all required Flink dependencies and import it into your IDE
- run and debug a Flink program in your IDE
- install, start, and stop a Flink instance that runs on your local machine
After this session, you will have a high-level understanding of Apache Flink, its APIs, libraries and the runtime. Your laptop will be set-up with a development environment to start writing your first Flink application.
