My team will be supporting the Spark hackathon in Boston on May 28-30.
This weekend’s a good chance to teach yourself Spark.
“Apache Spark is an open source processing engine built around speed, ease of use, and analytics. If you have large amounts of data that requires low latency processing that a typical Map Reduce program cannot provide, Spark is the alternative. Spark performs at speeds up to 100 times faster than Map Reduce for iterative algorithms or interactive data mining.”
Happy Memorial Day weekend!
