Montreal users of Apache Spark, the fast and general engine for large-scale data processing.
Some frequently asked questions:
• Why start yet another Big Data Meetup? The Big Data space is nebulous and fragmented as can be witnessed by this tongue-in-cheek website (http://pixelastic.github.io/pokemonorbigdata/). It is also a space which is growing at a very rapid pace. This meetup is an experiment. The hypothesis is that there are a significant number of people in Montreal who are interested in having focused discussions about Apache Spark. This meetup group and the discussions therein are intended to be complimentary to some of the Big Data meetup groups already out there.
