6:40 PM - Codify your cloud infra with Terraform: the UpCloud CDK example | Speaker - Toni Kangas at UpCloud

7.10 PM - No pineapple on pizza! Streaming anomaly detection with Apache Kafka and Apache Flink | Speaker - Francesco Tisiot, Developer Advocate at Aiven

There’s a rule in Italy that states: “pineapple doesn’t belong to pizza”. Yet it’s a common choice around the world and a big discussion topic online.
We’ll use this funny example to show the power of the best streaming open source duo: Apache Kafka and Flink. We will initially showcase how data can flow in streaming mode through Kafka topics, and then add Flink on top to detect anomalies (yep pineapple, I’m looking at you), calculate aggregations, and enrich our pipelines with data coming from external systems like a PostgreSQL database.

If you want to see the creation of a streaming data pipeline for anomaly detection in X minutes, this talk is for you.

About the speaker: Francesco comes from Verona, Italy and works as a Senior Developer Advocate at Aiven. With his many years of experience as a data engineer, he has stories to tell and advice for data-wranglers everywhere. Francesco loves sharing knowledge with others as a speaker and writer, and is on a mission to defend the world from bad Italian food!
