Accelerate Big Data Application Development with Cascading

Big Data is moving to the next level of maturity and it's all about the applications. Join Supreet Oberoi, one of the minds behind Cascading, the most widely used and deployed development framework for building Big Data applications, as we discuss how Cascading can enable developers to accelerate the time to market for their data applications, from development to production. In this session, Supreet will introduce how to easily and reliably develop, test, and scale your data applications and then deploy them on Hadoop. He will also explain the growth behind Cascading and talk about Cascading's future with Spark.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
