Subject Re: Help with starting contributing to Flink

Hey,
Yes, just decide what you would like to work on, and if that happens to be the Streaming API,
we will be glad to assist you with your effort in any way. There is always something to do
from the pretty simple to the very challenging ones so we can definitely come up with something
that you will find suitable.

So just let us know, and we will create some JIRA-s from the todo-s.

Regards,
Gyula
