If you want to leverage the strengths of multiple streaming tools, but without the typical overhead of familiarizing yourself with each tool and their interconnected relationships, then this talk is for you. This is a beginner friendly talk intended for anyone who is familiar with just one of these tools, or none of them (although some familiarity with SQL will help). If you want to walk away with the necessary foundation to go home and build a unified batch and streaming pipeline without having to know Flink (or Java, or Scala, etc...), that's where Flink SQL comes in. We'll then add in Pulsar, enabling you to maximize their pub-sub messaging system alongside your pipeline. This talk will go through an easy-to-follow 5 step process (with demos for each step) to building a unified pipeline with Flink SQL and Pulsar together, and resources for future steps.
