Get started with Cloudflow

The workflow to build and deploy your first Cloudflow application includes preparing a development environment, coding some streamlets, creating a blueprint to indicate data flow, and running the example. During development, you will likely want to run applications first in a local sandbox and then on a Kubernetes cluster. This chapter describes how to build a simple "Wind Turbine" Cloudflow application, how to run it locally in the sandbox, and how to deploy and run it on a Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) cluster.

Before deploying on your cluster, check the versions of dependencies that Cloudflow supports.
