Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-1089) The Flink website main page is uninformative.
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 18:18:51 GMT
Sergey Dudoladov created FLINK-1089:

             Summary: The Flink website main page is uninformative.
                 Key: FLINK-1089
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1089
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Project Website
            Reporter: Sergey Dudoladov
            Priority: Trivial

The webpage at http://flink.incubator.apache.org/ provides no  information on why Flink is

The problem is that after skimming the main page people cannot figure out why they should
try Flink.  I gave the link above to my friend from industry, and in 5 minutes he asked me
if Flink was an enterprise Java framework.

I suggest adding 2-3 paragraphs under the "Project Overview" heading. They should explain
in plain English what dataflow systems are, which tasks they solve and what differentiates
Flink from its competitors.
A link to the recent VLDB paper might help as well. 

PS I would like to emphasize the word "plain" in the previous paragraph.
