Title: “Functional and type-safe programming in Spark.”
Apache Spark is seen by many as a killer app for Scala but at the same time its API is not very idiomatic for the language. In this talk I will explore the evolution of Spark API, elements that do and do not fall into functional, type-safe category as well as some ways to benefit from
employing such concepts when writing distributed data processing jobs.

Title: "Big data, first blood"
Why I found big data project cool to develop?
Behind the "buzz word", there are real-life projects and I would like to share our experience on this subject. What obstacles we encountered and how the team overcomes pitfalls. How we progressed from hi-level business project overview to a tiny implementation detail in a world of
Kafka, Hadoop, Hive, and Spark.
