Really excited to have Matt Pfeil from DataStax over with us for the next meet up as well as Johnny Miller. We will focus specifically on Spark and Cassandra which is going to be a hot topic in the analytics world this year.
More on the event...
DataStax, the company that delivers Apache Cassandra to the enterprise, last month announced a partnership with Databricks, the company founded by the creators of Apache Spark. As the database industry’s first partnership to integrate Spark and Cassandra, DataStax and Databricks will deliver significantly faster analytics to users of both open source technologies and enable today’s most progressive businesses to deliver highly personalized online customer experiences.
