Apache Flink® Training Materials


Self-paced Training from Apache Flink

  One of the best tutorials in the industry.  

The Apache Flink community maintains a short, straight to the point training course that contains a set of written lessons and hands-on exercises covering the basics of streaming, event time, and managed state. These training materials were originally developed by Ververica, and were donated to the Apache Flink project in May 2020.

This practical introduction to Flink focuses on learning how to use Flink to meet the needs of common, real-world use cases, including parallel ETL pipelines, streaming analytics, and event-driven applications.
