Dear friends,

This time we are running the meetup together with the NYC Hortonworks User Group.

We will have a lot of interesting talks. This meetup will not be about Storm, but about Spark because a lot of interesting people in the Big Data area came to NYC for the Spark East summit.


Come hear about the latest innovations in Spark and Zeppelin that are accelerating Data Science. We will have great food and drinks to get the creative juices flowing and then we will move into our exciting agenda.
