A New FLiP!

A New FLiP!

As some have noticed, I have left Cloudera. It has been an incredible journey. I joined Hortonworks in April of 2016 and then we merged with Cloudera in 2019. This is was my first article on Apache NiFi I got to grow with Apache NiFi as it grew from 1.0 to 1.14 during my time! A lot of things changed, evolved and the tech grew so much.

I got to do my first major conference talks at DataWorks Summit which will always be one of my favorite event series ever. I am excited to be involved with Pulsar Summit ( and many other conferences now

Reports from 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

I am really excited at what we are doing at StreamNative with Apache Pulsar. I still get to work with the amazing ASF open source community and all the great Streaming friends with Apache Flink and Apache NiFi. I am working on a FLiP Stack to demonstrate some cool apps you can build with Flink, Pulsar and Friends. Stay tuned. I will remain involved in the Apache NiFi community and I have a talk on Apache NiFi at ApacheCon later this year.

Please join me for new streaming adventures with Apache Pulsar, Apache Flink and the FLiP(N) Stack!
