How we use Scala on Hadoop @ eBay

Adam Ilardi, a data scientist at eBay, will talk about their implementations of Hadoop jobs using Scala. He'll walk us through their transition from Pig and raw Cascading to Scalding, and why they spend their time coding in Scala.

He'll also cover practical concerns of running software on petabytes of eBay data. Researchers can't always just toss their models over the fence so he'll talk about what it takes to get model driven data into production.

    a nice honest look at Scala usage with Hadoop. I liked that the 'wiz-bang' features of Scala were not over used.

    Damn. Got stuck in the path station for 40 minutes and now it's suspended. Can't make it. Will there be online video or slides? Thanks.

    Embarrassingly, I have a crunch for a release tomorrow, so can't make it. See what using Java does to deadlines.
