The Apache Flink community put some great effort into integrating Pandas with PyFlink in the latest Flink version 1.11. Some of the added features include support for Pandas UDF and the conversion between Pandas DataFrame and Table. In this article, we will introduce how these functionalities work and how to use them with a step-by-step example.
Apache Flink 1.11 has released many exciting new features, including many developments in Flink SQL which is evolving at a fast pace. This article takes a closer look at how to quickly build streaming applications with Flink SQL from a practical point of view.
As July draws to an end, we look back at a monthful of activity in the Flink community, including two releases (!) and some work around improving the first-time contribution experience in the project. Also, events are starting to pick up again, so we've put together a list of some great events you can (virtually) attend in August!
