Data Analysis with Flink: A case study and tutorial

This article is a step-by-step guide to implement a fairly sophisticated data analysis algorithm, end-to-end in Apache Flink. We will use the PageRankalgorithm, an algorithm used for ranking entities in graphs (such as webpages in the web). We will go through Apache Flink’s APIs, the Flink iteration feature, optimization, as well as local and distributed execution and monitoring. All code samples are given in both Scala and Java.
