Databricks engineering will join us to discuss new platform features and offerings highlighted at the April Spark AI Summit in San Francisco. These include the introduction of Koalas to enable scaling Pandas, ML Flow enhancements, and Delta for improved management of data in motion and at rest. This is a great opportunity to see how these features can accelerate productivity for Spark developers and Spark workloads in cloud environments.

Networking will begin before the meeting and the presentation will start around 6:30.
