The 2023 Flink Forward conference featured 2 full days of expert-led training sessions for Apache Flink® followed by a main conference day hosted by Emmy award-winning personality Jeff Houghton. Attendees immersed themselves in the Flink ecosystem through: keynotes, technical talks, Flink user cases, and more.

The content-rich agenda also offered lots of recharge activities including a quiet lounge room, a retro arcade with games like Pac Man and Pong, and an expo hall to learn more about the Flink community.

The event concluded with a celebration evening, Flink Fest, where attendees networked with industry peers and celebrated with food, drinks, arcade games and live entertainment. The event concluded with a evening celebration to announce the 10 year anniversary location of Flink Forward.
