Spark!

Spark!

Have you heard about Spark already? In essence: take Hadoop, remove Map-Reduce requirement, add in-memory processing, provide very nice API (interactive!) and make it up to 100x faster.  

Przemek Maciolek will give an introduction to Spark and related technologies, together with some real live examples.

Talks - Lightning or not

Feeling like would like to share some experiences with Big Data? You're most welcome to! 

If possible, contact with the organisers in advance, so we can have a nice list of planned talks (and send update before the meetup). However, if an Eureka moment comes to you at the very last minute - it's fine to just bring ideas and share them with the rest of us.  

Announcements

There's a Big Data conference on March 27th in London, with free admission (though the number of places is limited): http://www.computingsummit.com/bigdata If anyone is interested, please contact [masked]

    Very interesting technology. I was expecting a more academic detailed analysis on how the optimizations work but telling the truth what really matters is how it can be useful to you & that was covered very well by Przemek. Thx for that :)

      Thank you Avgoustinos! I'm pretty sure we'll get back to Spark soon. We could make the presentation more academic next time (as well as some more sophisticated insights from real-life usage). :)

      Hej Vitaliy, nie powinno być problemu ze znalezieniem miejsca przed biurem na Wyczółkowskiego. :)

    Will person, which doesn't know much about Hadoop, but would like much to learn, understand anything from the meeting?

    • Przemek M.

      Yes! And as I've seen so many times will probably ask the best questions! :) Come and join us!
