I'll be giving a talk in Berlin, Germany on October 12, 2015 at the FlinkForward conference. 

The title of my talk is: Flink and Spark: Similarities and Differences

Apache Flink and Apache Spark, as alternatives to Hadoop MapReduce for Big Data analytics, offer more choice and more confusion!

This talk analyzes the similarities and differences between Apache Flink and Apache Spark.

The approach taken is unique as it is based on covering many topics such as computing engine (runtime), APIs, domain specific libraries, architecture, programming models, tools, big data stack, ecosystem, community, …

The main goal is to share with users some knowledge that could help them when selecting Spark and/or Flink.

Developers of both projects might also find this analysis helpful and learn a few things from each other’s.

I look forward to meeting you if you are attending the 2015 FlinkForward conference on October 12-13, 2015 in Berlin Germany.
