This is an interactive meetup for Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland users, enthusiasts, and explorers of Apache Spark (www.spark-project.org). Spark is the powerful open source Data processing framework that extends and accelerates Hadoop; built around speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics. This is a very interactive meetup where we will exchange ideas, inspire and learn from each other, and bring the top minds and innovators around big data and real-time solutions to the table. This meetup is meant for both the business and technical community (both the curious and the experts) interested in the "how" and the "why" of Spark's capabilities. The meetup will include introductions to the various Spark features and functions, case studies from current users, best practices for deployment, and speakers from the top technology leaders and vendors who are helping craft Spark's roadmap for the future. Let's build this exciting Spark community together!
