A spark for Spark
Spark newbie and skeptic, ready to be pleasantly surprised
Help support your Meetup
This is a group for people in the Greater Boston area who are interested in Apache Spark--what it is, what it does, and what other people are doing with it.
• Have you had a taste of the performance and power of Apache Spark and want more?
• Tired of writing all that boilerplate code that comes with traditional Hadoop MapReduce?
• Or are you just interested in Big Data and want to learn about the Next Big Thing in cluster computing?
Then come join us at our next Meetup! People of all skill levels are welcome!
Oh, what's up with our logo, you ask? Nothing.
