> Hi Claire,
> Thank you - happy to see a paper with such a detailed description of your
> experience with both usability of Beam per se and the execution on the
> Flink runner!
> The paper looks well-written, and, from a quick look at the code, it seems
> to be using the Beam API properly without obvious opportunities for large
> improvement. Great work!
> A couple of suggestions:
> - I think it would be useful to mention explicitly in the paper abstract /
> introduction that you are testing Flink and Apex runners, and mention which
> other runners are currently available, and mention why you're testing
> specifically Flink and Apex. This would be useful to people reading the
> paper without much background in Beam, who might not realize that Beam has
> many different runners with potentially very different performance or level
> of support for features.
> - As a member of the Dataflow team, I'm curious :) Have you considered
> also benchmarking these pipelines on the Dataflow runner? (especially
> - For the issues you found that are clearly not "intended behavior" (e.g.
> unacceptably low performance in streaming mode; pipelines not working at
> all with Apex runner, etc.), would it be possible to add JIRA IDs to the
> paper, so that people who read the paper later can look at the JIRA and see
> if it was already resolved?

>> Interesting work.
>> In section 5, you talk about the Java language being difficult. Was there
>> a reason you didn't use Java lambdas for your work?

>>> Hi folks,
>>> We are a two-members team interning in Yahoo! Inc who are currently
>>> evaluating the performances and functionalities of Beam API. We built two
>>> pipelines using Beam API referencing the default examples. One is sentiment
>>> analysis and the other one is flight performance analysis. Here attached
>>> the codes written for the two pipelines and instructions in README about
>>> how to run it in our framework. We would like to share them with you. Also
>>> there is a paper we wrote about our evaluation results and our experiences
>>> about using Beam in the last two months during internship. It will be a
>>> great help if you can have a look at it and maybe have some comments to us.
