Hi everyone, my name is Ivan Mushketyk and welcome to my course Understanding Apache Flink. I am a Principal Software Development Engineer at ViaSat, but before that I worked at Amazon Web Services and at Samsung R&D.

Every day the world generates more and more data. And the amount of data that we currently have is enormous and to process it we need better, more powerful tools. This course is an introduction to the new, fourth generation Big Data processing tool called Apache Flink.

This course starts with a short overview of Big Data technologies and describes unique Flink features. After that you will learn how to process finite amounts of data using Flink and how to process infinite steams of data, which is where Apache Flink really shines.

You won’t just learn theory, you will see how to apply Flink in practice to process a dataset of movie ratings and a realtime stream of tweets. There are not many prerequisites for this course. You don’t need to have prior exposure to Big Data, but you should have good knowledge of Java.

By the end of the course you will have a solid foundation to get started developing your own Apache Flink applications. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into other course about Big Data ecosystem.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Apache Flink with the Understanding Apache Flink course, at Pluralsight.
