Hello everybody,

happy to announce our July meetup with two very interesting presentations, both focused on Spark analytics. Catalin will present their latest "toy" :-) for data scientists, a way to script analytics jobs on Spark and Felix will present insights of their latest Spark projects aimed for the retail market. Two quite technical presentations, if you are into analytics and Spark you should not miss this meetup.

For this meetup we left plenty of time after the presentations in order to discuss and socialize. It's summer and days are longer so lets enjoy longer our drinks, you're welcome to stay, meet people, socialize until closing.

Agenda for the meetup:

6:30 - 7:00 PM getting together & socializing

7:00 - 7:40 Analytics pipelines with Jupyter and Spark - Felix Crisan ( @ Netopia

7:40 - 8:20 Groovy analytics with Apache Spark - Catalin Alexandru Zamfir ( @ Gameloft

Analytics in all forms and sizes should be groovy! What if you could combine the best languages and tools running on a JVM for Big Data analytics? And keep it simple? Making it user-friendly? Providing your fellow data-scientists a groovy experience? We’re going to explore an empowering idea of running analytic scripts using the Python-like Groovy programming language on-top of a Spring and Apache Spark technology stack.

8:20 - 9:30 PM Pizza & Socializing

Look forward seeing you all in july,
