In this series, we develop Apache Beam Python pipelines. The majority of them are from Building Big Data Pipelines with Apache Beam by Jan Lukavský. Mainly relying on the Java SDK, the book teaches fundamentals of Apache Beam using hands-on tasks, and we convert those tasks using the Python SDK. We focus on streaming pipelines, and they are deployed on a local (or embedded) Apache Flink cluster using the Apache Flink Runner. Beginning with setting up the development environment, we build two pipelines that obtain top K most frequent words and the word that has the longest word length in this post.
