Hi Spark Enthusiasts,

Pallavi Priyadarshini and Praveen Devarao both from the Spark Technology Center at IBM Software Lab will walk you through on how to develop high speed connectors for Spark. Our agenda for the meetup on Saturday, May 14th -


• Connectors - background, motivation and use cases

• How to build your own connector - code walk through

This session will introduce you to Spark connectors and take you through the out-of-the-box connectors available in Spark and others available as Spark packages. This session will brief you on the background of why customized connectors are needed followed by a developer session on writing your own Spark connectors that covers how Spark recognizes the extensions and how you can write your own Spark extension, illustrating with IBM use cases. At the end of the session you should be able to learn when and why customized connectors are needed and be able to write one for your use case, if not available already.
