After receiving your great feedback, the Coding Dojo comes back. For those of you who have never been to one, a coding dojo is an event where people work in small groups for a short period of time (2 - 2.5 hours in our case) on topics of their choice and later share their achievements with the rest. Or in other words, it's a perfect chance for you to start using Flink. We'll make sure that each group has at least one coder who already knows the API.
During the September’s Dojo setting up our local environments required quite some effort so this time let’s come prepared. I see two options:
Using Google Cloud Dataproc where Flink and other standard tech come out of the box.
Spinning up our own custom VM (the organisers would take care of this).
Let us know what you prefer and which tech you will need in the comment section.
In the meantime think of topics that you would like to work on and post them on the Meetup page. It can be anything from doing your first steps with Flink to some niche streaming use case. Check out the September’s Dojo for inspiration.
