    +Flink uses a concept called *windows* to divide a (potentially) infinite `DataStream`
into finite
    +slices based on the timestamps of elements or other criteria. This division is required
when working
    +with infinite streams of data and performing transformations that aggregate elements.
    +
    +<span class="label label-info">Info</span> We will mostly talk about *keyed
windowing* here, i.e.
    +windows that are applied on a `KeyedStream`. Keyed windows have the advantage that elements
are
    +subdivided based on both window and key before being given to
    +a user function. The work can thus be distributed across the cluster
    +because the elements for different keys can be processed independently. If you absolutely
have to,
    +you can check out [non-keyed windowing](#non-keyed-windowing) where we describe how non-keyed
    +windows work.

    -## Windows on Keyed Data Streams
    -
    -Flink offers a variety of methods for defining windows on a `KeyedStream`. All of these
group elements *per key*,
    -i.e., each window will contain elements with the same key value.
    +## Basics
     
    -### Basic Window Constructs
    +For a windowed transformations you must at least specify a *key*

    Are we using the oxford comma in our doc, I didn't think so? 😄 
    
    But fixing it and the `transformations`.

> The window documentation could be a bit more principled and also needs updating with
the new allowed lateness setting.
> There is also essentially no documentation about how to write a custom trigger.
