On a monthly basis we bring in conversation leaders and have group discussions on topics at and around data ranging from the skills that are necessary to get into data science to the concepts of fairness and bias in machine learning.

Introduction to Safer Spark with Functional Scala

Online event

Nashville Data Nerds is a Data meetup that meets monthly to discuss ideas or projects related to data. During COVID, we have switched to virtual meetings. The format of the meetings are:

- 15 minutes networking via Zoom breakout rooms
- 30 minutes for the conversation leader to present a topic with a discussion
- 15 minutes for open discussion

Topic:

Spark has become the de-facto standard for big data processing since its inception over 10 years ago. Being written in Scala, you are able to leverage the functional Scala ecosystem for creating safer programs. Building functional Spark Scala jobs provides more efficient runtimes and some compile time safety that allow us to create more robust data processing programs so you can spend. Kevin will lead a conversation introducing key concepts to building functional Spark jobs in Scala.
