Surprise! Dave Lester, Twitter's open source advocate, is in town and will be presenting to our group next Tuesday, October 8th.
In his talk, Dave will present the basic architecture of Apache Mesos, how Twitter runs Mesos and Apache Aurora in production and why, and the ways Mesos has been adopted by the open source community to run both analytics infrastructure and web applications.
Apache Mesos (http://mesos.apache.org) is a cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and dynamic sharing across distributed applications, or frameworks. It can run Hadoop, Spark, Jenkins, MPI, Hypertable, and other frameworks on a dynamically shared pool of nodes.
Dave Lester is an Open Source Advocate at Twitter, based out of San Francisco. He is also a committer to Apache Mesos and Apache Aurora.
