    Some thoughts prior to the event: It looks like this real-time analytics via Spark is currently available in the enterprise edition 4.5. I was wondering what would be the benefit for the community edition from this integration

      We released the open source cassandra-driver for spark, so a part of DSE has been open sourced.
      We plan to include it in the DSE/DSC soon
      but for now, you can just use this: https://github.com/dat...­
