Subject Re: Understanding and Contributing to Flink
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2015 11:37:42 GMT
Hey all,

I will start with some starter JIRA tasks, along with building some
application of Flink, particularly in the domain of NLP/text processing.
Any good NLT idea to implement over Flink? I am thinking on picking this
JIRA <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1450> one to start on the
development.

Any pointers where to start for understanding the code-base. I am imported
the maven project in eclipse and I see a lot of modules.

Moreover, another point i would like a clarification on is that we write an
Execution pipeline using Flink-Core, Java/Scala APIs, then pass that Jar to
a Flink-Runtime (similar to what we would do in a hadoop cluster). The
Runtime now generates an execution plan for the data pipeline and overloads
the task to the worker nodes. Is my understanding of Flink usage correct?
Where does the Flink-compiler come into the picture.

Appreciate all the help in advance.
