Spark Summit East 2016

Next week I’ll be demoing Data Scientist Workbench at Spark Summit East (official site) in New York. Polong Lin will be there with me. Come by the expo floor next Wednesday and Thursday and chat with us.

Data Scientist Workbench is what my team builds. It hosts open source data science tools like Jupyter, OpenRefine, R Studio IDE, Zeppelin and others for you. There’s exciting stuff in the changelog every week.

I signed up in time to get into a training session at Spark Summit East, so I’ll be spending my Tuesday working with the Wikipedia data sets. In today’s industry jargon, I’m more of a data engineer than a data scientist, so I’m hoping my Spark skills are up to the level needed for the advanced course.

This week I’m at Datapalooza Seattle, which is a good opportunity to brush up and expand those same Spark skills. In fact, we just posted the Day 1 challenge for Datapalooza. If you’re following along at home, fire up your Data Scientist Workbench, open a Jupyter notebook, and give it a try.
