Hear the Latest Apache Flink Updates

Earlier this year, I attended the @FlinkForward for the first time and I absolutely fell in love with many people in the @ApacheFlink community :heartbeat: I was honored and it was an absolute pleasure to speak at the conference today, and hopefully I will see many of you in SFO soon!
