This workshop will show you the basics of getting up and started developing Apache Flink applications locally with the long term goal of deploying to Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink.

In this workshop you will create a stream processing application to identify customers entering your casino who are betting big, and sends you an e-mail when big spenders sit down at a gambling table. You will also identify tables that need a refill on chips, and identify potential cheaters in your casino through their betting and winning patterns.

To do this, we will leverage Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka to capture events, Kinesis Data Analytics Studio to detect events of interest, and Amazon Lambda with Simple Notification Service to send an e-mail for any events.

Getting Started

Workshops for Apache Flink and Apache Beam on Kinesis Data Analytics and Kinesis Data Analytics Studio, all using the NYC Taxi Cab trips dataset.                                                                                                        


Using IAM with Amazon MSK and Easy Stream Processing with Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics (37:02)

Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK) now supports integration with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for authentication and authorization. You can now use IAM polices to securely access Amazon MSK Apache Kafka resources. This tech talk will dive deep on advantages, ease of use, and more details on using IAM with Amazon MSK. Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics allows customers to build stream processing applications in multiple languages, including SQL. In this session, we'll also walk through how to do streaming joins in SQL against data read from Amazon MSK.

Query Your Data Streams in Real Time With Kinesis Data Analytics Studio (13:22)

This video shows you how Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics Studio simplifies querying data streams using SQL, Python, or Scala. A managed Apache Zeppelin notebook-based development environment and stream processing powered by Apache Flink lets you quickly analyze streaming data from a variety of sources including Amazon Kinesis Data Streams and Amazon Managed Streaming for Kafka (Amazon MSK).

Lesson learned on Apache Flink application availability (34:46)

A presentation at the Flink Forward San Francisco 2020 event that describes how Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics monitors your Apache Flink applications for availability. This includes how to automatically categorize errors and intervening to restore application availability.

Needle in the haystack - Monitoring health of a huge Kafka fleet with Flink (15:12)

In this session, we show you how to build an entire stream processing pipeline to collect, ingest, process, and emit streaming data using Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, and Amazon Kinesis Data Streams.
