Apache Flink® Resources:

  • The Apache Flink community announced the release of Flink Kubernetes Operator 1.7.0!
  • There’s a new CLI plugin for Flink SQL that gets you set up with one command!
  • Check out Andreas Wombacher’s post on Linkedin where he shares a sketch of a Flink development environment that supports inline debugging during data pipeline execution and some key takeaways.

Terminal Tip of the Week:

Did you know you can use the Confluent CLI to store your API keys? That way you can run subsequent commands against the cluster you specify with the key and you don't have to add it every time. This limits exposure.

Here's how you'd set that up:

confluent api-key use <api-key> --resource <resource-id>
