In this talk, I will walk through how someone can set up and run continuous SQL queries against Pulsar topics utilizing Apache Flink. We will walk through creating Pulsar topics, schemas and publishing data.

We will then cover consuming Pulsar data, joining Pulsar topics and inserting new events into Pulsar topics as they arrive. This basic overview will show hands-on techniques, tips and examples of how to do this using Pulsar tools.
