We are happy to announce a Seattle Spark Meetup Special Event with Paco Nathan:

Fun Things You Can Do With Spark 1.0

Bring your laptop for a mini-hackathon intro to Spark 1.0 features. We'll distribute USB sticks loaded by Databricks with code + data sets, then walk through.

This is a super-condensed version of part of the "Intro to Apache Spark" workshop, especially for those who could not attend the workshop that day, or wanted to learn more about Spark first.

We'll cover the basics of getting started with Spark from the interpreter (spark-shell), plus the new Spark SQL, support for Parquet, etc.

Some experience with Python, Java, or Scala will come in handy.


Food will be sponsored by DataBricks! (no need to bring $5.00 for the basket)
