Workshop Event detection with AWS Managed Services for Apache Flink



In this workshop, you are the acting technology manager for a Las Vegas casino.

Create a stream processing application to identify customers entering your casino who are betting big, and sends you an e-mail when big spenders sit down at a gaming table.You will also identify tables that need a refill on chips, and identify potential cheaters in your casino through their betting and winning patterns.

To do this, we will leverage Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka  to capture events,  Managed Service for Apache Flink Studio  to detect events of interest, and Amazon Lambda  with Simple Notification Service  to send an e-mail for any events.
